The ignition switch/key on my '74 1/2 is just about failed. I'm afraid to actually remove the key as it takes about 5 minutes of playing with the key and switch to be able to turn the cylinder.

I'm looking to replace the switch/cylinder/key but there are no NOS ignition switches available from JH/Delta. Has anyone ever successfully cross referenced the ignition switch to another British roadster of the era. These assemblies are readily available from Moss, TRF, and Victoria British for the Triumph, MG and Jaguar.

I'm making the mental jump that since the ignition is electrical maybe it was a common part supplied by Lucas???

Any other words of wisdom on replacing the key/ignition would also be appreciated
