    Default Column/ ignition switch repair

    I'm looking for options to repair my 81 zephyr ignition cylinder that was broken after losing the keys. What are my options? Is a replacement available, or should try and source one from a used steering column?

    These are cheap and easy to do (check out youtube; they're the same on the 80's Rangers). Probably in stock with keys at your local parts store for under $20.
    If the lock turns (or is currently turned to "on") then you're half done.

    The lock cylinder is no longer in the column it was all broken and pulled out. A screwdriver can be used to operate what is left of the ignition in the column.

    I'll have to check it out and see what they have, then. Thank you.
