Broken ignition key ex mod 110

HELP NEEDED! hey guys. I lent my mate my 89 ex mod V8 110 and some how he managed to brake the freaking ignition key in half.......no fucking idea how but he did.

What's the best option? I don't think any one can cut a key off the broken one....so I'm pretty fucked with an 110 with no spare key. Any help would be amazing.

As I recall, the tumbler pops out really easy. It's been a while so I don't remember the details but it comes out. After that, you can start the truck with an Allen key until you get a new tumbler, which is different from the newer tumblers. I don't have the part number handy.

A "good" locksmith can probably cut you a new key to fit what you have. It is only four codes, IIRC. Or pick it and get the barrel out which will allow a key to be cut.

You can get new barrels. They are cheap. If you want, you can get a whole set and replace them all...

Without a working key, you will need to carefully drill out the existing barrels.....

Ignition is super simple to replace on an MOD truck. 15 minutes. Really not much point to the key anyway. No steering lock and two seconds to hot wire.

If you do not have a locking column it just pops right out. There is no security.

Derek:

I can email you the ignition switch "bypass" instructions as well if you need them (after you take care of the column lock). It's been a common theme for folks as of late with the ignition switches delaminating (probably 1/2 dozen folks this month alone have reached out to me). This is assuming your ignition switch is similar to the NAS or ROW style on the ExMOD.

MOD trucks do not have a column lock. It is just a simple switch.

I couldn't read anything you'd written due to being transfixed by the over-spray on your brake pedal ...

Without the key, the tumbler will not come out without picking it or drilling the guts out of in. The normal procedure to remove the tumbler, is to insert the key then press the release pin in.

Hopefully they sold you the non-locking diesel type. The diesel version has the glow plug position, whereas the petrol one does not.

I will also suggest that for the long term to get an OE (Lucas branded) one (much more than $15). IME, the Chinese knockoff ones fall apart within a year or two.

Then pickup a barrel set and you can have all the keys the same.

The truck Derek is referring to is a V8 110.
