removing old steering lock on a 74 Sport

Post by Slowpoke28787 » Wed Jan 14, 2015 6:25 am

Key is long gone but I have a brand new blank. I did order a new complete Nieman lock. Can anyone tell me how to remove the old one? Drill it out and if so tiny drill bit towards top or big one to drill out the entire lock. Doing a top notch restoration so don't want to screw this up. Frame is bare so I could take it by a locksmith with my key blank. Advice???

Thanks geodoc!

I am a BMW /2 owner too and am aware of Duane's knowledge. Also Vech has a similar method. Just checking to see if this is the gold standard.
