vent window latch

I want to change the latches on my vent windows. I have knew latches. Does someone know of a trick to remove the old latch? I can't get the roll pin in the old latch to budge.

There are no vent frame latches, just handles.

1968/72 F100/750's use the same vent frames and handles / 1967 F100/750 vent frames and handles are 1967 ONLY!

That's something I would like to know too.

I've been eyeballing the later model F150s with a vent window. They have a latch built into the lever arm pivot. If their post diameter and lever offset is the same, I would like to adapt them over onto my truck, to have a locking vent window latch.

I've never had the pleasure Aby. If I were to do it I'd have the window unlatched. Keeping tension off the handle and it's roll pin. And I'd grind an old punch down to the diameter of the roll pin and use it to tap the old pin out.

It's been billions of years since I eyeballed this stuff but if I remember right the locking handles/pins/springs off a Dent will work on a Bump vent window frame. I've never tried it but I remember thinking it would work. Caution, this is going back Decades though. Going to a JY and trying it 1st would be a good idea. If ya go to a JY and can swap the stuff out (without buying anything yet) let me/us know.

I better mention this also. I just checked Dent stuff. In 1977 when Ford changed from a non-locking handle to a locking style they also changed the vent window frame. So I think a locking Dent handle will fit on a Bump frame but I think a flat spot would have to be ground in the handle's shaft for the release pin to be able to move and work.
Ford lists the same non-locking handles C8OZ5422916B and C8OZ5422917B fitting 68/early 77 Bumps and Dents.

NumberDummy is right, vent handle. I forgot to mention this is on a 1970 model. I'll try soaking them with some WD40 and grind down a punch. I'll try cutting a block of wood to wedge between the bottom of the vent handle and door to steady it up. I bought my handles from Dennis Carpenter.

When I changed mine I ground the point off of a finishing nail and held the nail with a pair of of vise grips to drive it out.

When I restored a 76 a few years back I robbed a pair off of a 71 I parted out to go on it.

While we're on the subject, my driver side handle is a bit wobbly worn. I'm wondering if a replacement handle will fix the problem or is it the pin on the frame that will be worn? Or both?

Prolly the handle Uni. The pins on those frames always looked like hardened steel to me.

The latch handle is made of much softer metal as, I found out when changing mine out about 5 yrs ago. Though the same thing will it be a waste or a fix.
It was a fix for loose sloppy wind wing latch handles..
