I need some advice on how to replace the ignition switch on a 1970 plymouth cuda. I have removed the steering wheel, crash
tube, turn signal switch, and snap ring for the bearing. Now I am stuck. The hub with the bearing doesn't move. How do I
get the hub off so I can get to the ignition switch?

here is the other link that might help..


let us know how it goes..

please.. also.. hook a test light clip to the positive coil terminal.. shove the probe end into something grounded..

slowly turn the key on.. then to crank.. then back to on.. then to off..

you should NOT have any drop outs..  once you get it on..

you will find variations in brightness.. on is a medium brightness.. cranking is full brightness and back to the medium brightness in RUN...

i have had a bunch of people come up with broken ballast resistors... and their mopars would only run in the crank position.. when the ballast was completely bypassed...
