I succeeded! I followed the packages instructions, missed bluelightnin's response.
Here is what I did looks very similar. Disconnected the negative terminal. Turned key to the ON position as if it were running, took a thin long phillips screwdriver and poked the hole farthest from me (2 holes). Pulled on the black part of the ignition, not the keys and slid it right out. Slid the new mechanism on. The key didn't pull out so easy, so I took the ignition cylinder out and back in again, and that fixed it. Reconnected negative terminal and works fine now.
Took about 45 minutes, 30 minutes of which were going wal-mart to get a tool to remove a bolt on the negative terminal :).
My 2 complaints now are my door keys are different than my ignition, and the car keys look very generic, o well is going to steal a 96 ford with 180K miles :.
My original question was in regards to a tilt because there was a precaution in the instructions about "one piece non-tilt steering" I'm assuming because I can lift the wheel up and down with a lever for comfortability that it is not a non-tilt steering wheel. For the sake of basic knowledge at this point, is this correct?
