The locksmith can also make them work with your ignition key too

Take the glove box and trunk key tumblers to a locksmith. They can make replacement key or keys.

I lost my 63 BJ7 to a whole house fire a number of months back.  I owned my BJ7 for over 30 years.  I restored the car and it was beautiful.  There was nothing I would not undertake on the car.

I have replaced my 63 BJ7 with a 66 BJ8.  I do love the "new" car.  There are differences between the cars and that is what I need help with.  I need to clean the overdrive operating valve and then adjust the overdrive solenoid for proper operation.

My question is how do I remove the center console?  I see the two screws on each side of the top of the console where it joins the dash but there is more to removing it. Where are there other screws/attachment points?  Are there disconnects for the switches or do I just made a sketch of the wiring before I disconnect them?

I received just the ignition key when I bought the car.  Is the ignition key supposed to operate the glove box and trunk?  My key does not operate any of the.  If not, I do not see numbers on the locks themselves so how and where do I get replacement keys.  I also assume there is a separate key for the doors and I do not see a number on that lock either.

What other important differences between the cars that I should be aware of?

The list has been great with information and help in the past.

Thanks to all who reply.
