I want to adjust the loading-door latch on my Harman Mk I, so it will pull the door a little tighter. The hinge side is snug, but the latch side is loose; there is no tension at all on the latch mechanism.
The only way I can see to adjust it, is to bend the curved piece that is bolted to the stove body. It is very thick steel and does not look like it would be easy to bend. If I put a wrench or vise-grips to it, will I damage or break the bolt? Is there some other simple way to do this that I am entirely overlooking?
