Default Ignition Switch

Just purchased a 1930 Model A Fordor with no starting switch key. It's a pop out switch with a code no 874 stamped on the side of switch cylinder. Local locksmith with no luck.

Dick Crabtree restores the popouts and can cut keys. A and L cuts keys.
Use graphite lock lube. At the start of this section is a listing of services and web sites where you will find both.

He's a good guy.
He did a rebuilt pop-out switch and original key for me.
Works great.

He also runs ads on ebay all the time.
