Waytago! Too bad you didn't get it out before you had to hose the ign
I found out you can't drill out the lock or the protective sleeve. I
took the front plate from a 123 to th a guy who was selling carbide
drill bits that were 'indestructible" and would "drill through
anything." It dulled his drill. The drill barely made a dent. He
asked what it was. I said Kryptonite!
I had gotten the front plate out by grinding off the protective sleeve
and then the lock.

Just to let you know I finally got the tumbler out, but accomplished
it by cutting the protective sleeve. I have gotten the tumbler to
rotate outside of the housing once our twice and found one broken
piece of pot metal, but would like to take it further apart to see
what is really mucking the operation. I will order a new key and
tumbler set and sleeve, as the 190 steering lock that I have, doesn’t
have the transmission lock feature.
