SOURCE: Key stuck in ignition of 1976 chevy corvette stingray 350 auto

If I understand, the key will not rotate to all of the normal positions? If this is true, then I would guess that the trani didn't fully return to the park position please verify, You can check the ignition switch(the one that is half way down the steering column) for defects. Is there any binding, does the rotate freely? Thank you; good luck.

SOURCE: I am trying to remove the ignition switch from a 1976 Chevy PU

This plate is the steering lock plate.It has a lock ring on the shaft but is under very heavy spring pressure which must be compressed in order to remove and re-install. There is a special tool that compresses this spring.It mounts on the steering shaft threads and pushes on the plate.It is quite difficult without but can be done with two persons as one presses and the other removes the lock ring...good luck

The lock cylinder is probably worn (assuming that you have the right key!) Try wiggling the key while trying to turn it. Try ay other copies that you have. If the key locks the steering you may have to move the steering wheel to get the key to turn.
