Kill Switch

What type of ignition are you running?? There is a way to hook up a kill switch to a MSD box if you have one.... No spark, no go.... I have always thought about hooking on up to the floor dimmer switch for the headlights???

A skilled locksmith might be able to make a key. You would need to take the lock to him. Start by taking off the inside door panel. Probably a simple clip of somekind holds the lock in place.

A simple toggle switch run from either wire coming from the distributor could act as a simple kill switch.

A toggle on the power wire to the coil/distributor would be a good place to put one.
