They look like you could separate them they look uneven instead of being level to the wheel they are not on all 3 wheels.

Then your key is probably not the right key.

Re: Any information on older safe locks

There are change keys where this "flag" is on the edge and others were it is on the flat side.

Sometimes there are change keys on ebay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/173528570408
Another option is to make one yourself. You could make it from square stock or from round stock and grind it to a square where needed. The "flag" can be soldered or a threaded pin can be screwed in. I have seen the second option on newer Kromer change keys. If the lock is not in a safe it is also good enough without flag.

I have some square stock thats a little bigger so I can file the access off. Thank you now back to spinning.

Re: Any information on older safe locks

Here is the mosler cd 120 I have never seen the insides like this it have a relocker built-in and instead of brass i think that is some kind of plastic or rubber. Any information again would be great. I'm going to try to mount it today heres some pics...
