I believe the electrical part of the switch is available separately from the
keyed part. I have replaced the electrical switch part of the ignition switch on
both of my Type 44's. Are you saying that the keyed part failed? That seems
unlikely. Just replace the electrical part and keep your keys matched. Oh, you
already have keys that are not matched. I am not sure how to help you there. Any
chance you can get the original part.

Any of the good mail order suppliers can supply the part you need.

Well, I finally isolated the intermittant no-start problem to a faulty
ignition switch (again...).  The previous owner replaced it about 3
years ago with one that is not keyed to the doors, thus requiring
separate keys.  Anyone have any idea for locating one, other than my
(shudder) local dealer?
