Re: Replacing Ignition Cylinder
I replaced the cyliner only on my car. I did have the key but I am not sure if you actually need to turn the barrel once you have the paper clip inserted. I think that if you can find a gm key that will fit in the ignition but not turn I think it will work.
I did it a couple of years ago on my 68 and I can't remember if I had to turn it or not.
The barrel was very loose and sometimes would not start the car. With the new barrel in the old switch it worked perfectly.
I have owned 3 69 Z/28s: Garnet Red 30,000 mi unrestored.
