Thanks for posting! Before we can recommend an applicable replacement for this mortise lock, can you first tell me the distance between its installation screw hole centers?
A quick learner from Rochester says:
The distance between the installation screw holes is 3 5/8 inches.

Thank you. In that case, please see our 82-218, or its stainless steel equivalent, the 82-243 Inside Mortise Locks with round faces. Do you think you could use either of these as a substitute?
A quick learner from Rochester says:
Thanks!

I think I will go with the 82-243.

Regards,
Randy :-)
