    Still waiting for this box of RN11PL to arrive should be here today. I am still looking for the smaller RN10PL blanks if anyone runs across them.

    I don't think there is such as blank as RN10PL! To paraphrase Billy B. Edwards, the L & P sections were .51" dia., not .40".

    With all due respect Nathan, Y4 and 998S are not keyways; Y4 is the 6-pin GMK to fit all G-family sectionals while 998S is the 5-pin version of the same masterkey. 998GB and 998GE are 6-pin G-family sectionals and Y4 and 998S should thus fit them both. As BBE explained, PL may also fit some G-family sectionals.

    PL and PR are valid .40 keyways originally used by Yale Banklock division and are/were restricted.
    We have some old Diebold parts catalogs at work that show these keyways among others.

    Default .40 PL blanks, they do exist

    The PL section was definitely used on very old safe deposit box locks with peanut cylinders. I have one from around 1905-10 that uses this blank. The renter's keys are PL, the guard a corrugated keyway. They're for a .40 cylinder, marked "PL", and 5 pin in length. I have some marked "Yale Paracentric" with no keyway marking, but they are definitely PL as well. Perhaps you could rekey those padlocks to safe deposit keys if you can find some.
