On a 1981 MAZDA 626 (same engine)2.0 you remove the right/left cover on the steering column (three screws) and remove them. On the left side behind the key cylinder is the disc (round) ignition switch with several wires attached in a circular pattern around it. Wires and connectors (believe 4) go down the steering column from it (this is the ignition switch). The part # is Niehoff LC62411 on my 626. You remove this and install the new part in it's place. Problem is finding the part. Get one from a junkyard if nothing else. Also, the 82 Mazda truck is the same as an 82 Ford Courier (so maybe a Ford dealer has the part). Ford owns about 30% of Mazda and a Ford VP runs it.

The 1986 Mazda B2000 pickup truck has 14"x5.5" rims. The OE tire size is 205/75R14, and 195R14 tires also fit ideally.

Apparently you have NO clue that the truck has electronic ignition! Meaning the truck does NOT have points!It has a rotor button,and ignition module.Points have not been used on the for years and the 86-93 Mazda series are all electronic ignition. I own a 89 b2000 and the point gap is 0.45-0.55 and it DOES have points! I can take a photo for you if you like? So they are NOT all electronic ignition!
