Ignition Tumbler replacement help

Recommended Posts

Though I can't think of an easy way to remove and reinstall the lock assembly you have, I can recommend another way to install it next time that may save you or someone else a bit of pain and frustration:

I tap the hole with threads and use a small set screw (grub screw) instead of a roll pin when I do these. Use blue loctite on the set screw (I've had one get loose over time).

Hope this helps!

+1, I did the same but just used a short self-taping screw, worked like a charm and fully reversable.

Does the key turn the tumblers with the ignition tumbler in hand?

The hole the roll pin sits in has a bottom in the example I have in front of me. The roll pin should bottom out.

As stated - most folks use a screw.

I have a matching set of ignition and door handles and two extra keys.

I'm dealing with a broken key. Let's chat.

I'll get back to you, i'm having a bit of trouble drilling it out right now and may just need to replace the whole assembly.

it did turn before i put the pin in.

I think i just hammered it in too far, i can get the key all the way in but it will not turn. I'll chalk this up to a lesson (fortunatly cheap) learned.

any one have tips for drilling it out, i have the 7/64 bit but am making no progress, i think i am going to try and us the step up method going from 3/64 eventually to the 7/64.

I drilled out the old broken one easily last time.
