    any time we needed a new lock we would send to ford to rebuild it,think its the key when sent in to them they insert it into a reader to read it so can make a new barrel with the same info.

    I did mine a few years ago, you need to keep putting the pins and tumbler, springs in the lock untill it match's your old key, You put them in one at a time and keep trying each one you put in with your key, If your key turns the lock move on to the next one, it's easy but fiddly
