Default Lost key Chinese ignition no problem

I just wanted take the time to put this up here if it could help anyone else out I’ve done a huge amount of research on this issue As I went through it myself so now to the topic so you lose your only key and order that eBay or amazon after market ignition key gas cap seat lock setup and only to come to find out after installing the ignition you only come to the problem of the fuel pump not priming over doing so because the new ignition you just installed “does not come with your diode or restrictor” inside it what you actually have to do is take your old ignition and get those I believe it’s 3 torx bolts out and install the entire circuit unit into your new ignition which is easier because new ignition comes with fillup screw driver screes you do not have to cut any wires or solder any diodes or restrictors into anything the hardest part I had was getting those 3 torx bolts out with a small punch and allenwrenches and a few screwdriver bits helped me as of course you use the new screws back in new one hope this helps

Good post.

The Torx are actually security Torx, and rather than fight 'em, I'd suggest buying a small set of the proper bits. They can be had for less than $10.
