looking for some advice on how to fit a new lockable barrel to the ignition switch. it seems to have a pretty solid blank in it.

I just bought a lock assembly with keys off ebay, www.stores.ebay.com.au/Landy-Spares.

Pretty easy process then to remove the plastic cowling around the steering column and replace the keyless ignition in place. 

I ended up removing the bracket from the steering column so I could get the old assembly out. You will need to get a screw driver or similar under the blank that is wedged in to the barrel. Then you can get it out of the bracket.

Take note of where all the connectors go make the change and then you are keyed.

Just watch when you remove the lower housing around the steering column where the hand throttle bracket joins. Mine has broken off the plastic lugs that held it in place. May need to put some small bolts through to hold it in place. If I try and use the throttle it just pulls the bracket out of place.

Thanks, did exactly as you suggested although had to use some force to get the blank/cover off the original barrel.  The original barrel was still in place - just had all the pins removed. All good now.

 I have also made a cargo barrier (for safety/security) from 25mm sq tube and weld mesh - bolted in place using existing bolts/holes so now need to drill more holes.

TonyP,  can you post a photo of your cargo barrier. I am thinking about the same thing so would be interested to see what you have done.
