Ken, on my 1925 Fordor, I had the original Yale lock, with a number on it but no key, I was lucky to find a locksmith, who "thought", they could make a key for it, so leave the lock with them, and let them try. A couple of days later, I called them, and they said yes, they made a new set of keys for it, and cost was only about $23! I think it was more of a challenge for them, to see if they could do it right, I know it took a few tries, but, they came through for me.

My 26 Tudor has a new replacement from the vendors and it is a Yale lock.

Ken, unless your cylinder looks "fresh as a daisy", you may, or may not, be able to get a locksmith to make a key. The problem is the pot metal material Briggs and Stratton made their cylinders from, which like pot metal carburetors, are prone to swelling, cracking, and deterioration.

On some keys. like kwikset for example, the number on the shaft could be the cut code.
