Without a key you won't get the tumbler out. He is going to have to replace the ignotion switch and the tumblers.

You need the key to turn it to the accesory position and a paper clip to push the release button in. Without a key you can't do it.

Exactlly right.
I lost my keys. Just got it fixed last week. Go to JBG get a switch its only 15 bucks IIRC. Pretty easy swap with the switch. Any Autozone or whereever should have it too

yup, a good locksmith can a key for almost anything for about $25, I lost my keys for my 68 plymouth that i had in 96 and the locksmith made me a trunk key and an ignition key for about $35. we had to hotwire it to get back to town but that wasn't hard with that car.

There is a couple ways, I lost the keys for a '90 F-250 and I just drilled out the lock cylinder and then used a screwdriver to turn it to the on position and pressed in the pin and pulled out the lock cylinder

You just want to make sure that you dont drill too far.

Thanks guys. (I'm the one who got my keys stolen.) Fortunately my friend's dad is a really good locksmith, so i'm going to go that route.
