Hi all. My 78 powerwagons key has come up missing (I think my 2 year old has something to do with it).

All I need to do is move it over beside my trailduster as it is going to be giving up its salvageable parts.

Is there any way to get it to fire without cutting wires or replacing something.

If all else fails, how would I hook up a toggle switch to start it, since I might need to move it a few times.


any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

everything works fine so it is just not starting because of no key.

There is a very easy way to do this guys!

On the bottom of your column, just inside the dash, there is a silver box held on by a bolt. Unbolt that, and you will notice a wire about the size of a coat hangar that the ignition switch pushes when you rotate it. All you have to do is use a scribe or something to push it all the way and engage the starter. The four positions are the same as the ignition, off, acc, on and start. Have fun.
