1959 ignition switch

Post by Royce Richmond » Sun Jun 04, 2017 5:44 pm

I'm working on a 1959 tbird conv. ignition switch because I couldn't turn the switch off while it was running without a lot of jiggling and twisting. I got a new switch and lock cylinder from a tbird vendor. I removed the old switch and swapped the wiring and installed the lock cylinder. With the switch not installed it worked fine but as soon as I install it the key would not turn. If I press the switch in from the rear then it works. Anyone have had this problem? I now can install and remove the darn thing in 10 seconds flat since I've done it about a dozen times now. Any help is appreciated....Royce
