due to unfortunate circumstances I sadly had to sell the old girl, she went to a really good home.
Thank you Lada people for all your help!

Looks pretty good. My old Lada came sans rear seat too. Not sure why this happens. I replaced the ignition on mine with a generic one from Canadian Tire.

Thanks, I picked up another NIVA with the 1.6 and it has a good igniton cylinder and keys! However the key only works on one door lock so at least my Lada 1.7 has one locking door now.
There are a lot of wires on the 1.6 ign so I am not sure what wires to hook up from the 1.7.
There are only 4 or 5 I think, right now it has a switch and push button to move it around but once I get it on the road I am going to want to have the key for it!

There are (should be) two distinct keys. One for the door locks and one for the ignition. They are noticeably different.

The repair/service manuals with all the wiring diagrams are on my website. The 1600 and 1700 ignition barrels/switches are identical.

Instructions to remove/replace the barrel are here:

Thanks Gagetboy, I found that video very helpful and the pics are great, I got the old ignition out of my 1.7 so now to take out the one from the 1.6.
and get it into my good Lada!
I have to say this Lada forum is the best forum I have ever been on, no trash talk and everyone is very helpful!

So I had some time tonight to get out to the garage. I noticed the belt was loose so I tightened it up. Charged up the battery for a few then it fired right up. While at idle the battery was reading around 13.67. The alternator was the same.
When I turn on the light it went down to 12.89 and was declining , so I took it out for about 30 mins and ripped around in the field where they are building new houses it was awesome!!
Came back and the battert was holding at about 11.78 to 11.2ish something.
When I turned the headlights off it started to climb back up to over 13.
NOt sure why it goes so low when I turn stuff on but the one thing is that the alternator charging light did not come on.
However I think I need a smaller belt as the belt is still a little loose and it is maxed out on the bracket. Also the belt is shredding so obviously the pulleys are not lined up properly. This will be a challenge.

Ordered some coil spring and ball joint spacers today!! Ladaworld, LadaPower and Russian4x4 are all good places to get parts from. Well, hopefully they are, all my parts are on the way!

New Alternator from Russian 4x4
Front and Rear lift rings, ball joint spacers and shock relocators from LadaWorld
A bunch of gaskets and new gas struts for the rear hatch from LadaPower!!

Hopefully it won't take long for everything to get here!

Just an update on my progress! I got my alternator in last night and took the old Niva out for a burn! The battery is holding a charge and it seems to be running pretty good, not just to work out the clutch issued and change all the fluids!

Nice to see someone enjoying their Lada so much.

I'm sure looking forward to getting my 2104 out of the garage and on the streets where she belongs.

Cheers and keep up the good work !!
