You position the switch as shown, and put the rods into that notch, then attach it to the column.

The acturator rod for the ignititon switch sits at a 90 dergree angle and in order to connect the rod to the switch it must sit at a 45 dergree angle. When I tried to connect it there is tension on the rod because or the difference in angles or I am missing something in my haste I did'nt note the position of the rod as it connect to the switch I hope I am making sense I am working on a picture hope to send you one soon

I recently came back from a long trip and put in a key in my 1993 Chevy S-10 Blazer and jump started it. Well when I tried to turn it off the key was jammed and it would not go to the lock position. There is now lever like some models. It will not move toward the lock positon. My wheel moves freely and the ignition alignment point is about 3/4 of an inch from the lock position. Bottom line is I can't turn the key down to turn the vehicle off. Today I took the cotter key(pin) off and removed the bolt to remove the steering wheel. Any advice would be helpful. I purchased the book today so I could work on the brakes; however, the ignition.(Key jam) was not in the book at all. Thanks in advance for any reply.

You'll need a steering wheel puller and a lock plate compressor, then dissconnect the negative battery cable for at least 2 mins before starting! Air bag could trigger if you don't!!
