Not sure I follow you. Are you going to rewire the key switch power source back to the starter post ?
And the truck is actually a 1968 instead of a 1986 ?

How do you change the ignition switch on a 1986 nissan truck


not real familiar, but the way for most foreign cars from the 80's are to remove the plastic from around the steering column, look around the area of the lock for a small pin to press in. with the key in the ON position, press in the pin and pull the ignition out, without the key, it gets complicated and the lock must be drilled out, then turned without the key.
