I can't rotate the key in any direction at all, so I can't access the retaining ring to pull out the lock cylinder. What I'd really like to do is put a push button ignition switch and completely defeat the column lock. If I could do that I'd feel more secure in the future -- I'm not worried about anyone then being able to steal this old bucket of bolts. But in the meantime, I do need to move it and get it back home.
I've been on the net for several hours looking for a solution, but am getting buzzed and not finding anything useful. My Haynes manual says I need to turn it over to a pro. Unfortunately, if can't fix it myself, I'll have to junk it! Even having it towed out of the forest would be a hardship. Desperate for a how to.
