    So, I put the key in and it will not turn -

    Wiggle wiggle - then pull out just a hair - turns perfect -

    now should I blast it out with WD40? try to get it to turn easier?

    or is it just old and in need of a new ignition...?

    Sounds like either your key or your ignition (or both) are worn. I would spray with some Lok-ease (has carbon in it) and if that didn't work, well, replacements are available from CDan or SOR.

    Thanks - will do -

    Guess I might have to give CDan a ring...

    this has been a hell of a mornin -

    Toilet backed up - s*** all over -

    what fun!

    But I scored a free Herculiner kit from a friend - owed me $50bucks...guess that compensates for the s***ty smell...
