Ignition keys 727 and 732
« on: February 04, 2021, 10:26:49 AM »
 I have 2 ignition switches, both without keys. Is there anyone on this forum who can help me get an original or duplicate key 727 or 732 ?  so that I can finish the restoration of my 350.
Thanks in advance, erniegroen@gmail.com

Thank you Moonpup, the last time I looked at Richard's site these were not there.
But I found a pair in England yesterday. Is a bit cheaper to ship.
Greetings, Ernie

Further on this subject. On my 200 I have a factory switch to which someone has fitted some sort of aftermarket key. How can I find out what factory key number I need to fit the switch ?

If it's the factory switch, there is a three digit number stamped into the face of it around the lock cylinder.

So I have the switch with the number stamped on it . Assuming that is the original switch would that mean that the steering lock would be the same number or is that different?

If they re original, both numbers match. The key number is also on the steering lock if you look closely, so you can easily check. I don't think mine match, but I wouldn't use the steering lock anyway.

I agree had a bad experience on my sport 60 . The lock only locked one way. I had locked it . Turned left to leave then went to turn right at end of drive way and of course it was locked and piled it up into the ground. Never used it again !
