Does anyone know how to disassemble the ignition cylinder in a '37 Packard? Some newer classic cars had a little hole in the front but this does not have that. How can i release the plug from the cylinder so i can decode the key?

'55 400. Needs aesthetic parts put back on, and electrical system sorted.
'55 Clipper Deluxe. Engine is stuck-ish.

Figured it out!!! It was just a bit finicky. With a working key (or picked), rotate the cylinder to the ON position. Insert a paperclip into the small hole in the side of the case. If you don't feel springiness, you're not there - keep wiggling the key around until you do.

Once you feel the spring depress with the paperclip. It may take a little bit of wiggling, but the cylinder will come out!
