Replace your ignition switch before somebody catches on and sees it or you might get stuck somewhere like my truck did. It is the keyswitch more than likely.

This is a true statement. You can buy an ignition switch with 2 keys from an AC-Delco dealer cheaper than you can buy it from a Chev parts dept. They're too cheap. (a heck lot cheaper than the price to replace the car)

Hey plain,
I kept the 307 on my 70 Malibu conv front fender after installation of a 406 for 2 reasons. My wife made me because our youngest (14 now) was born at 3:07pm and the rear is a 3.07 12bolt posi.

Hey DZ I have a non-posi 3.07 12 bolt laying in the garage. The one that was in the Malibu 307 was a 8.2 10 bolt with 3.08 non-posi. Has a 12 bolt 3.36 posi in it now. Clemr what was your address?

Back in my youth I remember being able to start most of my friends and their parents GM cars with my Camaro keys! The one's with the wing nut type ignition seemed to be the easiest to do this. You could pull the key out of the ignition with it running. As the keys got old they got filed down to almost nothing. It was like having a master key!!
