Legacy door handle set replacement

A quick learner from Cherry hill says:
I replaced the mortise but the thumb lock does always not latch. It's profile that the thumb latch / handle might need to be replaced. I cannot install it with the latch down and locking to the right due to space. If I purchase the 82-034 two handle set can I install it with the latch in another orientation? Possibly out and latching up? I also have a matching cover the goes over the mortise. See pics... Tks

Paul from SWISCO responded:
The 82-034 is a little awkward since the thumb latch cannot be adjusted or moved. What exactly is preventing your mortise lock from functioning the way it was originally intended? Could you substitute the handle set with something like our 82-069? The thumb lever for this handle set can be adjusted to sit at a bottom, middle, or top position.
