Need help replacing a '72 f100 ignition key cylinder, lost the keys

Hey, i was just wondering if anyone has taken the ignition cylinder out of their f100 bumpside without the keys.
Is there any way around drilling it?
If not, how would i go about doing that?

Any Lock Smith or prolly Dealer will have a key. It will take one to get the tumblers out. Ya will prolly do more damage drilling it. It takes less than 5 minutes to change one out but ya got to have a universal key.

If a dealer has the key, it's a miracle!

Dealers can still cut these keys by hand (if they have a Curtiss key cutter), but most will not bother. In order to so this, the specific key code must be known...and the correct key blank is required.

Forget the dealer, go to a key shop. The ignition key is the SAME as the door lock cylinder keys (as original), so you don't have to mess with the ignition switch.

Just remove one a the door lock cylinders, take it to a key shop. Most locksmiths can come to your truck, pick the lock and make you a new key, but this ain't cheap.

I had new keys made for my 67 at a local locksmith. I think it's the passenger side that has the key code on th cylinder. I had to go back and get the other one, since I brought the wrong one. May want to take all three, to make sure the keys will work.

Door/ignition key code will begin with FA, then (depending on whether it's a 5 cut or 10 cut key) have 4 or 5 following numbers.

If you have the key, but not the code, all you have ta do is read the key cuts. 1 is the shallowest, followed by 2, 3 and 4. 5 is the deepest.

But, while these key cuts are not the actual code, the code will translate to the key cuts.

This "read the key cut" jazz also works for house and etc keys. This is the major reason you should not leave keys layin' around in public places...like on restaurant tables.

Professional thieves know how to read key cuts...so y'all can guess what could occur...next.
