I removed my ignition switch tumbler because I was getting cranking at the ""on" position. I removed it and accidentally moved the key past the "Start" position, and now it won't turn either direction. Is there a trick here? Or did I just cost myself a tumbler?

Trip next week so any quick help is greatly appreciated!

I did the same the other night when I was installing my 55 column for my 60 PS conversion.. I managed to fiddle with it enough to get it to come back around.. I dont know what the trick is though, but it comes back past start rather than all the way around..

Thanks for the info vk7ybi, but both my wife and I "tinkered" with the tumbler for what seemed to be hours and no dice. Luckily, I had a couple stock steering columns and keys I robbed the tumbler from for our trip. I guess I'll keep trying, but I'm thinking I'll have to run a door key and ignition key now :(

When I put stock PS in my hard top, I ended up with two different keys.. I couldnt make the original tumbler work in the later locking column for some reason.. Two keys is only a minor hassle, but one that we could do without..
