Re: new key barrel turns with no key

If it is the one with the little lever thing on it it will except when you lock it with the key.

It does have the brass pins in it that the key moves so that it will turn ?? With the key out they should be sticking out enough so the cylinder doesn't turn and when you put the key in they should all be level with the surface of the cylinder so they will turn. If they are missing it will turn just as you describe.

My ongoing truck projects:
48 Chev 3100 that will run a 292 Six.
71 GMC 2500 that is getting a Cad 500 transplant.
77 C 30 dualie, 454, 4 speed with a 10 foot flatbed and hoist. It does the heavy work and hauls the projects around.
