That's a nice picture/writeup rollbar, thanks. But do you know what the difference would be for a tilt column?? I have a buddy who recently bought a '79 CJ-5 and he has asked me to help him replace the ign. cyl and I believe it's a tilt.

This goes into detail about changing out parts, pic are here & you can follow them. It's pretty easy, turn the key to the on position & push the button & it might slide out when U have the wheel off.

CJ Tilt Column Fix I save stuff like this (on my hosting service) so it doesn't get lost (seeing I have a great hosting service & tech dept. :) ) & or so I don't have to take a bunch of pics/write ups.

When U get to the 9th picture unscrew and set aside he turn signal.

'79 models go like this:
1. After U get to the turn signal in in pic number 9 set aside.

2. Insert the key. Position the key like this.

A.-W/a stick tranny put the key in the ON position; auto=off/lock position.

3. Work through the turn signal mounting w/a thin screwdriver to release the lock.

4. When U go to install the new one, hole the sleeve or body of the new lock & turn clockwise until it stops. Align the cyl retaining tab thingy w/the housing it came out of, push the cyl in & rotate to engage & then push in until the retaining tab (the thing U had to push to get it out) engages the housing grove.

5. Oh, make sure U have the tilt in the neutral position (straight out not bent up/down).

Hope this helps.

P.S. There is a quicker way w/out taking off the steering wheel etc. ---> Scroll down.
