Actually Tim, its from dirt and and crap getting into the tumblers. The tumblers are so small in the old ones, and they are single sided, that when they get dirt in there, they "cock" sidways and wont move. The new cylinders are the old Ford style tumblers. They are twice as big and double sided. No comments on the "cock" thing Tim, lol
