One you should know about..
:lol:

Contact block!

Key goes around fine for the first two turns (going in is never a problem, as any key of the same profile *that's also cut to a pattern* will go in no problem.) Right...off with the cowling

I have an early BL key and complete ignition that I used to plug into your car to start it when the ignition played up some years ago. Turned out to be the ignition switch that time. I may have a switch in the garage but not known if it's a good one or not. I seem to remember Corky supplying me an ignition lock and keys some time ago. Not sure if I still have that as a spare or not.

Managed to free the system up a bit and contact block is confirmed to be the culprit as once split the barrel spun around nicely, have managed to free the mechanism up a fair amount but she will need replacing in the not too distant future

Thinking out loud....just pulling it apart and running a brush on the inside has appeared to have taken most but not all of the stiffness away, would putting some sort of lubricant onto the said area help with this issue?
