'77 ignition switch wont come out


Recommended Posts

My '77 1 ton has been sittin for a few months because it wont start. I changed the battery, changed the starter, and checked the wiring. Now I'm changing the ignition switch, but it wont come out. All the research says to take out a screw holding it in, but that is on the later models. My '75 had a tab to push up on and slide the tumbler out. This one has niether. Check out my problem.

Great video! I had to replace the tumbler in my old '76 a few years ago & I believe I had the tab too. However the new tumbler didn't lock in the same way. Have you tried a flat tip screwdriver in the vertical slot directly above the hole where you said the tab was on your other vehicle? Also It seems like I had my column apart on mine so I could see the tumbler set up from the bottom. Is that possible on your truck or am I dreaming things? If you can that may give you another option to get that thing out.
