Sometimes those can get messy. You will need to hammer the lock tumbler out of there using a slide hammer with a screw on the end. Another way to do it is drill the tumbler. Larger and large until it falls apart.
Here is what the book has to say:
Proceed with Steps 1-8 in the Ignition Switch procedure.
With the key in the cylinder and turned to the ON position, pull the lock cylinder out far enough so the securing pin can be depressed through a hole in the side of the lock cylinder housing. Use a steel wire to depress the pin.
As the pin is depressed, pull the lock cylinder out of its housing.
Gently push the cylinder into its housing. Make sure the pin engages correctly and that the retainer fits easily in place. Do not force any parts together; when they are correctly aligned, they will fit easily together.
On many 1976 and later Type 1's, and many Type 2's, the release hole was not drilled by the factory. Using the illustrations, drill your own release hole with a 1 / 8 in. Drill bit.
STEPS 1 - 8 of IGNITION SWITCH
Disconnect the steering column wiring at the block located behind the instrument panel and pull the column wiring harness into the passenger compartment.
Remove the steering wheel.
Remove the circlip on the steering shaft.
Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Insert the key and turn the switch to the ON position. On Type 3 vehicles it is necessary to remove the fuse box.
Remove the three securing screws and slide the switch assembly from the steering column tube.
It is not necessary to remove the turn signal switch at this time. If it is necessary to remove the switch from the housing, continue with the disassembly procedure.
Remove the turn signal switch.
After removing the wiring retainer, press the ignition switch wiring block upward and out of the housing and disconnect the wiring.
