My key,s are almost impossible to insert into the slot. Two of the very fine Vendors each have a back order list from the first of this year.
How may I eliminate this problem?
I am a member.
My dad bought me my first when I as 15 YOA in 1945.
I am open to your solutions.
Try a couple drops of light oil like 3 in 1.
Might work and it won't hurt anything.
Not sure what year key switch you are referring to, but have you tried Ben Martin 770-038-3376. He does nice work rebuilding the the dash mounted units.
Ron the Coilman
Thank You Bob & Ron
I tried the oil and it is easier now.
I am going to call Ben Martin for his suggestion.
The switch is a 1924?? Model.
some of the repro's keys do not work smoothly like the original keys. Could you tell us the number on the key? (It should match the number on the tumbler.)
Ron, The number for Ben Martin is no longer in service. Do you have another means of getting in touch with Ben?
Bob, the the number on the tumbler is #1.
The trouble I have is that the internal guide seems
to be worn so that I must be careful to slide the key at the correct angle to march the worn guide.Thank you.
Ben Martin's No is 770-938-3376
Sorry my mistake that should be: 770-938-3376
Mr. Martin rebuilt mine, solved what I thought was a magneto problem. He does excellent work, it looked and acted as new, and is a real gentleman. He will probably want you to send in your key with your switch, at least he did for me.
