Default Pop out key

Ok, here’s a long shot, but what the heck. I have a pop out lock number A1042 any chance some one with a bunch of keys would have that number?

I have heard some suppliers like Dick Crabtree have blanks and can cut a new key for you.

Go to any locksmith that can cut keys from code and tell him the cut code for A1042 is 33155. Tell him to use Briggs & Stratton Gas Cap spacing on a B1 blank.

A 28-29 and early 30 with a oval speedometer uses a B1 blank.
A late 30 and 31 with a round speedometer uses a blank that is only available from Model A parts vendors, and very pricey.
However most of the 30 and 31 locks are worn so a B1 blank will work in most of them.
Any locksmith with a code cutter machine can make your key, if his books go back far enough to get the codes, if he does not have the old books you can give him the codes and he can cut your keys.

I agree with contacting Dick Crabtree. He knows the pop out locks and can make a key for a fair price. Great service,
Jon
