Default small question on switch setup

Hey all, do you reckon I will be able to get away with having a main "key lock"IE a separte dash mounted ignition barrel, to operate a live feed then a flick switch for fuel pump and a flick switch for ignition then an engine start button? will mr iva not like this?

any info or experiences will be appreciated

michael

Why not a dash mounted key switch similar to a standard car one with off-acc-run then a separate start button. I wouldn't like the fuel pump on a switch incase it got turned off by mistake

Column Lock acts as one of the imobalisers that are required for IVA. Keeping it saves other hassle.

You dont have to use it, but it's an easy one.

Ring a few auto lock smiths, see if they have a Ford TIBB barrel decoder. And if so take your column along and they will read the lock and supply a new key.
