    I have a '69 FJ40, and finally decided to get some keys made for the doors. My local locksmith had one blank, and is having trouble locating more. Anyone know where I can get more at?

    Taylor blank# T74X, supposed to cross to Ilco# TA12

    Thanks!

    If you have the cross reference for the Ilco's I would look at your local Ace Hardware. I now for sure they stock the Ilco brand

    some are.......some are not. Your best bet is an older dealership that might have them on the board, ordering them is a PITA.....bet most dealers wouldn't even try.

    I found a local locksmith with blanks for my 64 and 66, it was a Taylor, got my 65 at the dealer. Ordered some others for the 64 from the dealer, all were wrong.

    There is a place out east that is on line...cannot find the link right now, but this has been out here before...

    If nothing else, I can ask a customer, as he ordered key blanks from them a year ago or so...

    I went through this when the ignition switch went out. I got a new key with the new switch. Looked everywhere for a blank before I gave up. Unfortunately I tossed the old key and forgot it was also the key to the gas tank. Oops! I now have to pry it open every time I get gas. I think the seperate ring I keep for the 40 has 5 keys on it.
    Door, ignition, Tuffy console, spare tire, steering wheel lock.

    If you have the code from the lock cylinder, I can cut a key to match, assuming I have your blank in stock (I have most I think?)

    I went to either Lowes or Home Depot for keys for both my 40s. I'm sure either would work. The keys are a bit longer than the original but work great. They just stick out of the key slot a little more than ususal. It is a standard Toyota key blank, at least it is for my 76 and 77.

    The 73 has a separate, single sidded door key distinct from the ignition key. Don't really know if this is a stock configuration but acording to the Honolulu hardware stores Home Depot, City Mill (didn't try lowe's this time) teh blank has been discontinued. It is possible that there is a bit of "we use teh same key blamk vendor" as this is an island. We get allot of that here.

    I found a local locksmith that had the TA12 blanks in stock to fit my 64 doors completely by accident. Just look for the most run-down hole-in-the-wall locksmith that looks like he's been in the same little building for 55 years. He'll have them. :cheers:
