First depends Do you mean ignition as with a key or as most call key switch ignition,or do you mean the ignition swicth located on steering column. ==well== The key cylinder lock rotates in housing on column,unless of course yours is dash mounted which make things totally easier.Key cylinder is what the key goes into,when turned moves a rod that pushs ignition switch into play,then falls back into run .Both work with each other but when you just put ignition switch hard to judge which you are talking about.Have you gotten the new one yet,also are you replacing because you have lost the key.Those old key cylinders wore out rather easy,would suggest if have the time,to visit a junk yard or 2 see if you can find an old olds key that resembles your old one.But would help if I knew more of why your replacing,and where cylinder is located.
