Thanks for the response. As I mentioned above, the car starts right up with the key cylinder in place without the turn signal and bowl assembly in place. If the key cylinder starts the car, then I can assume that the rack is connected to the ignition switch.
But when I place the bowl cover back onto the column and put the key cylinder into place and turn the key, the cylinder turns to start, I get my dash lights but no engagement?
I am trying to figure out what is preventing the rack from engaging with the ignition switch after everything is assembled?
I noticed that there is a cutout inside the bowl cover which appears to line up with a small latch that drops down from the key cylinder. If that is not dropping down after assembly, do I need to buy a new key cylinder?
