While installing dash wiring, I pulled the accessory connector from the back of the ignition switch. And with new switch in hand, removed the old switch from the dash rather than attempting to solder the old accessory back in place.

My shop manual appears to have no info on removing the key lock cylinder from the ignition switch, so here I am asking for help. I did this job 20 plus years ago, just forgot, and not inclined this time to start prying on it.

First put the right key into the ign sw.
Make sure it is the rightkey,turn key all the way to the left.until it stops
You will see a small hole stick a small wire or paper clip into the hole push it in and turn the key far left, the cly should come out.
