How to replace ignition switch on a 1974 ford bronco?

"First, insert the key into the ignition tumbler. Proceed by turning the key counter-clockwise until the key is in the "accessory" position. Using a paper clip or pick tool, depress lockout pin while turning the key counterclockwise approximately 1/8 of a turn. The tumbler should then release. Remove tumbler from ignition switch. Note the position of the tumbler as it is being removed from the ignition switch, making sure not to turn the key as it is being removed from the switch. Align the new key and tumbler in the same position. Be sure the flat edge at the end of the new tumbler matches the same position as the old tumbler. You will more than likely need to suppress the pin on the face of the tumbler as shown in video in order to match the same flat edge position.

Remove the plastic 2 piece shroud around steering column so as to gain access to the housing the tumbler sits in. Find three Phillips screws to remove in holes in the lower piece. Turn the ignition key to the Run position. Insert a small tip screwdriver in the access hole on the bottom of the housing to push the spring-loaded tab which will free the tumbler so you can simply pull the tumbler out with the key. Installation is the reverse. Be sure tumbler with key inserted is set to the Run position. Depress spring-loaded tab, insert tumbler into housing hole with tab down. All the way in, turn key to the Lock (off position).

Are you sure the key is inserted in all the way, try it with a different key. Make sure the wheels are not turned either fully to the right or left. You may have to remove the panels around the ignition cylinder to see if anything is restricting the cylinder from turning all the way. I know normally you must put it in the run position in order to be able to remove the cylinder but, have you tried removing it while it was in the locked position. You might be able to press the cylinder lock pin with it in the lock position. It could be that a tumbler has come loose and jammed cylinder.

How do you replace an ignition tumbler in a 1971 Mustang when the key is broken off and the ignition will not turn in the on or acc position?

The removal procedure for the ignition lock cylinder entails using the key to turn the cylinder to the ACC position, inserting a pin into the small hole on the front, and continuing to turn counter-clockwise. If you simply don't have a key, you could have a locksmith make on based on one of the door locks, assuming they are keyed the same. If the cylinder is jammed due to parts of a key being inside, and you cannot remove them, the typical solution (for any lock) is to drill out the cylinder by drilling a small hole that renders the pins and the necessity of a key useless. Once again, a locksmith's job.
