I'm afraid we do not carry the Caradco handle set you need. I'm actually not sure if it's even available anymore, since Caradco is no longer in business. If you need to just replace the key cylinder take a look at 82-310 . Your key cylinder looks similar.
A home owner from West Virginia says:
Yes the key cylinder is that part I need.
Where can I get a Spindle Bar for the above door mentioned (Caradco 4101341). And does it come out without taking the lock apart?

Thank you.

I'm not sure if that older spindle is something you can still get. We have the 40-187L , but yours looks like it might be bigger. This is .169" square. As for taking the lock apart, it very well may be necessary, yes.
A home owner from Massachusetts says:
I have a similar lock problem. The square shaft between the handles is broken and I can't figure out how to remove the other half of the rod so that I can remove the lockset for replacing. Any ideas?

I'm not sure what might be preventing you from removing the other half of the rod. It's weird that one half would come out but the other wouldn't. One explanation is that it's still attached to the other handle, but even then it should still be removable from the other side. 

Can you go into more detail on exactly how this broke and exactly what happens when you try to remove the other half of the rod? Is it firmly clamped in place or does it feel caught up on something?
