ignition switch replacement

Hi guys,

I need some advice on how to replace the ignition switch on my 1982 F-150. When I tried to start it last week i heard a crunch as I turned the key forward and the truck would not start. Luckily it got stuck in the "on" position so I was able to start the truck by shorting out the solenoid under the hood. Unfortunately, I can't shut the truck off without pulling the lead from the ignition coil to the distributor, which gives me a pretty good shock. I need to replace the ignition switch but I don't know how to remove the old one. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

H&H

Re: ignition switch replacement

Ignition switch is located on the 'top' of the steering column.(above the pedals) You will need to remove the 2 bolts holding the column to the dash, to lower the column far enough to remove the switch.
