General Motors Ignition Lock Cylinder Replacement
Seems confusing, but its not when you get into it. GM lock cylinders have a tendency to wear out to the point where a key is not necessary to start a vehicle. Door lock cylinders work different when they are wore out, in most cases with door lock cylinders the right key wont unlock the door.

1995 Ford F-250 4X4 Ignition Switch Replacement
This video details the troubleshooting process I went through when diagnosing the binding ignition switch concern in the start position. During troubleshooting, other issues were found with the shift tube bushing causing the gear selector lever to be loose. Interestingly, what I thought was the problem (a worn ignition switch) turned out to not be the problem at all. The problem with the key binding in the start position is within the actuator rod mechanism. These parts were lubricated as an initial corrective action, but that didn't solve the problem. The loose gear selector lever and binding ignition switch, though annoying, aren't big enough issues at this point to invest more money to correct. So I left things as they were so I can drive the truck and focus on more pressing maintenance issues. I will research sourcing these parts and will likely complete these repairs at a later date if these issues become annoying enough. Lastly, the smoke and burning smell coming from the cluster/column area was investigated and ultimately determined to be a failed component (a MOV) on the speedometer board which isn't critical to gauge or vehicle operation. Like the ignition switch/gear selector lever concern, this issue can wait until I can source the replacement part or repair the part myself at a later date. I keep these videos real and what you see is what you get with no editing. Sometimes, even after good troubleshooting, you're faced with a decision to either take things a step further and complete the repair or pick your battles and attack the issues later. This is one of those occasions. There are other items I need to address with this truck first so I will likely circle back to address the above items at a later date. You can't always fix everything all at once. (9/20/2012)





1991 F150 Remove steering wheel to replace/repair key and tumbler
Key would not turn forward to start the car. I had to remove the steering wheel to drill out the metal button holding the key and tumbler set in. Normally, you can turn the key to start and insert a long rod upwards through the hole on the lower side of the steering column to press the button which releases the key and tumbler. Since my key would not turn forward, I had to take the steering wheel off to fix it.





Pro Toured 1984 Monte Carlo SS
My Dad and I built this car and have had it since it was brand new in '84. Learned how to drive in this car! 1984 Monte Carlo SS. 350 HO GM Performance crate engine, comp cam, Edlelbrock RPM intake manifold, 2.5" Exhaust, headers, B&M torque converter, lowered, 17x8 torque thrust wheels, Baer brake track kit, Yukon 3.73 gears and chromoly axle shafts, LSD diff, HD cross member and cut outs for true dual Exhaust, too much to list. Sorry for the terrible sound quality when it cranks up. Cheap camera!

1985 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS 385 HP 350 V8 Nitrous
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/RamblinAroundTV I thought you might like a look at this very quick 1985 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS. It's powered by a 385 horsepower 350 small block that is equipped with a 125 shot of Nitrous, a Holley four barrel, long tube headers, etc. All that power is sent through a turbo 400 automatic back to a set of 3.73 gears with posi. The burgandy paint still looks slick and it has a nice original interior as well. I hope you find it interesting...thanks for watching!

1993 Buick Century Ignition Lock Cylinder Replacement
My ignition lock cylinder seized the other night in the Home Depot parking lot. Since the steering wheel has an airbag i almost took the car to a garage so i can have the lock cylinder replaced because i was scared of taking the column apart. I later decided to replace the lock cylinder myself. The job turned out not to be so bad. You just gotta take a little caution, and make sure the system is disarmed before working on the steering column. I learned a few things, and also saved some cash even though i had to buy the tools for the job.
