you can in fact grind the keyways on some of the cylinders - but it's a
bunch of extra work just to replace a worn cylinder with a partially
worn one. at the end of the day, especially if having a maximally
effective lock is the objective, it's best to just buy new. if the car
is so old you can't buy the cylinders, /then/ you grind.

Pls can I use the WD-40 for my ignition lock too. The master key refuses to go all d way in occasionally. Can I also use brake oil if I cant get the WD-40. Someone suggested that so I want to confirm. Thanks

Don't use WD40 on locks. It will gum them up. Use powdered graphite or
graphited lock fluid.

Graphite in an electrical 'lock' is not wise either.

I'm curious, what exactly is an electrical lock?

Graphite not wise? It's been the standard lock lubricant since the
Lincoln administration ;-)

There are three kinds of men. The one that learns by reading. The few who
learn by observation. The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence for
themselves. ~ Will Rogers

Your comments suggest that you're the kind of person that will pee on an
electric fence ... twice.

A lock that controls an electric circuit.

Yes graphite will do a very good job of lubricating the
mechanical part of the lock. Problems may occur if there
an open airway between the mechanical part of the lock
and the electric contacts in the rest of the lock.
The graphite might pass through and short the contacts.

Ah, I see. Not too good a suggestion then :-(
