Don't know what "won't pull far enough" means? Rod not long enough or the solenoid does not have enough movement to pull the door lock?

I have never installed one. But if the movement is not enough, the closer you move the attachment rod/hole to any pivot point, the more movement you will get. Maybe move the rod attachment hole in on either the unlocking arm on the door lock or solenoid?

I would send a Personal Message (PM) through the website and contact our "custom" car builder. No doubt he will have the answer for you and get you on track. https://www.gtoforum.com/f83/gto-vette-hybrid-133465/
