Anyone ID these engine locking bolts?

I believe these are Volcano locks, but I'm not sure. Sorry it's not the greatest picture but it's the best I can find right now... I do have what I believe to be the keys for them but current thinking is that it will just be easier to drill the head off at the back..

Anyone who can recognise them - do you know what the originally intended method of gaining access to the locks is?

It's funny how different and how clean it looks to how it is now!

Are they anything like this? Only think I can think of is there's a steel insert added on the end once they're locked?

Yes they're just like that and the keys are the same.....are most people's locks exposed permanently then?

I've got the same type but as I recall (I'm away from home at the mo), mine have barrel keys. Is that what yours have? There's no cover over the hole for the key - are you seeing a circular groove instead of a key slot?

I chose them because they looked indestructable which is fine if you've got the key. I've always wondered how I'd get them off if the locks siezed or I lost the key. concluded I'd angle-grind round the body about 3/4 of the way down (or drill the bolt head off as you suggest). Best to have another look for the key!

Just to be clear I do have the keys....I just don't know where to put them... I'll get a better picture tomorrow.

Mine are like these no covers and no issues I take them off every so often and spray with ACF 50

Get a set of mole grips and use a cold chisel to get those end caps off. Hopefully you lubed the key hole before you sealed it!
