Hi guys.

Lost my keys so trying to replace ignition lock.
I got the old ignition lock out and slid in the new one without the key inserted but the lock will not accept the key, as in it will not insert.
The key inserts and turns fine when the barrel is removed. I experimented with sliding the barrel all the way with the key inserted but it will not go all the way until the key is removed, which of course can not then be re-inserted.
Pretty sure I am dealing with the steering lock mechanism correctly.

Please help.

Have you watched this U-Tube video? Should translate to your application.

Maybe get some pointers...
