Steering Column, Ignition Switch And Cylinder

I must have been drunk when I took on this job, 1992 Focus, ignition key would turn to the igniton posistion, but not the starter posistion, the cylinder was turning in the housing itself. I assumed it was the key cylinder and or the ignition switch itself,,, which I was right,,, but to my misfortune the housing that the ignition cylinder (key) slips into, was broken also,.. this piece is made out of pot metal and is shaped similar to a long pistol. It also houses the slide bar which locks the steering wheel in place... this part is wrapped around the steering column and sits below the tilt ball (which allows the wheel to tilt),,I need to remove this tilt piece which appears to be helt in by roll pins, one on each side of the piecem (which allows the east west movement) and this piece sits directly over another (looks like it is plastic) pivot type half ball that has two roll pins, and gives the north south movement ( I can just barley see under the top one) and those pins goes into the shaft.
How in the heck do I remove these in order to remove this other piece... help??? I am about ready to pull out the entire shaft slide it off from the bottom.
