Parts stores should carry that item. Check around for price. You'll be surprised at the different prices.

My service 4x4 light is on and it won't get out of 4lo and 2hi, allwheel, 4hi just blink

It is either the switch is going bad, the actuator is bad, or you are loosing power to the actuator. The way to find out is to remove the pan under the front end, and unplug the actuator. Use a volt/ohms meter to test the leads to it in order to make sure it has power & ground. A test light can be used in place of a meter if you don't have one. Make sure the harness is clean & making a good connection, then test to see if it powers up when the switch on the dash is pressed. If it does in fact power up, then replace the actuator. This is more than likely the problem, and you can get a new one from most any parts store for about $60+. The light on the dash will only light up if it engages the actuator. You can listen to it with the engine off, ignition switch on, and have a buddy push the switch on the dash. You should hear it make a sound as they push the button from one to the other. This is in fact the easy way to tell (usually) if its the switch, or the actuator.

Once the key is placed in switch, its hard to to turn the key in switch

Do yourself a favor and have the ignition cylinder lock and actuator arm replaced because they are about to break. Usaully the actuator arm breaks, but sometimes the end breaks off the lock cylinder (replace both). Parts are available at auto parts stores. This is common for Ford trucks of that body style. Can't remember the procedure but I believe I pulled the steering wheel to change these. Oh, and the parts are not that expensive and the job does not take long. Don't try to re-wire a red-neck push button start because that is way more work!

My 1994 f150 ignition switch will turn the truck on but won't turn it off. Also the switch is very loose, does this need to be changed or tightened?

The plastic ignition actator (plastic gear drive) has lost the steel pin pressed on the end of it. This thing connects the mechanical key ignition switch to the electrical ignition switch(with pin gone will push ignition on BUT with pin gone cannot PULL ign. switch to off position),the whole steering column will have to be removed from truck to replace.Availible from Ford or parts stores--ASK for plastic ignition actuator-metal one is for 1987 to 1991 F150s.

Ignition actuator rack broke from acuator rod

Yes unless the rack has been broken also, most parts stores carry them. Just turn your key and see if it moves or not. The out side shell of a colloum is mainly for looks.
