Default '66 door lock/closing problem

Desperetly seeking HELP! My door will not close . After installing new interior door panels/cards, the door latch clashes with the striker plate. Removing the panel revealed that the door handle mechanism seems to be working but that the connection of that mechanism to the "relay rod"(horizontal rod) is way too loose. I can't figure out how the (2) parts are connected!!!! The "pin" from the handle mechanism rides in a slot in the "rod". Any thoughts/ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks,
Jack

Company's like Dynacorn, Classic Industries sell the assembly for fairly cheap. May be easier just to replace it.
