30th ann ignition and door locks

A recent post by matador has reminded me of something I have been wanting to do for some time now. The ignition in my EA series II has just about had it and the exterior door locks arent much better. What i have been thinking of doing is grabbing an ignition, locks and key from a 30th anniversarry model ( has newer style key ) and fitting those instead of just replacing the ignition and having two different keys.
Will I run into any dramas using these locks with the GL rods etc, as I am pretty sure the keys changed when tibbe lock was introduced. Also any dramas with the ignition?

Any help would be much appreciated

Re: 30th ann ignition and door locks

Walkinshaw is doing the dash board mod, maybe he is planning to change the ingntion as well, worst case he should have collected some good wiring diagrams, maybe drop him a line, he may have a bit of info to help you.

I dont know how the swap would go, but if it went ok, and nothing to major as a draw back, I am very interested in updating my ignition etc as well. Mine works fine still so no reason for me to rush into it.

Re: 30th ann ignition and door locks

you can get tibbe barrels without changing anything else, apparently. central locking/tibbe door lock actuators/smartlock are all seperate things.

i want to get both the tibbe lock actuators (the ones that sit flush with the door trim) and tibbe barrels for boot, doors and ignition. i got quoted $150 for the barrels alone, 2nd hand! i thought that was a bit steep...

if anyone has more info on this topic please post :)

ps: i think you can use parts from EA Anniversary - ED, correct me if im wrong. Maybe even newer?

pps: the EF has a metal plate in the door to stop people getting a coathanger in there to open the lock, i wonder if it'd be hard to mock something up?

Re: 30th ann ignition and door locks

I'm pretty sure the ignition barrels aren't the same, but the rest are interchangeable.

I can have a go at swapping them from my mum's car to mine, as my Mum's is a EAII with Tibbe locks and mine is an EAI with the older type locks.

Jason, I bought a complete genuine set of locks for my Mum's car for $85 about a year and half. I still have a receipt here somewhere. I don't know what your wrecker's smoking!
