Title: Key Question
Post by: Paul on April 04, 2008, 12:18:55 PM
I only have one key for my car, and it isn't an original.  How does the ignition lock cylinder remove from the ignition switch?  Is there a key number on the ignition lock cylinder?  What about the door lock cylinders?  thanks Junk

A mopar key Blank is a Mopar Key Blank back then.  The Ignition and door blanks are the same.  Trunk usually fits the glove box and trunk.  You can get them on the internet all the time.
 
I know what you want to do, get it all keyed the same.  It's easier to match the door locks to the keys than the ignition to the doors.  Take the two door tumblers out and take them to either a locksmith or the dealer parts department.  Both of them should have the tumblers in a kit.
 
I suggest the locksmith though. . . They will most likely take the time to clean and lube the lock so they feel like new.

This is a 1963 Chrysler New Yorker.  I did find a "Forward Look" key under the seat today, so I will assume that it is an original.  I still would like to get a set of keys that are punched by the numbers so I know that they will be an exact fit.  Having the lock cylinders professionally cleaned and keyed might be a good idea, since none of the door locks work very smoothly.  That will be added to my list of things that need to be done.  thanks Junk..

Look on ebay for original uncut keys....they show up every now and then. Just don't take them to a hardware store clerk to cut! The Locksmith is the only way to go.
