Ignition lock cylinder, rack, pinion and actuator rod replacement. This procedure fixes 1980 - 1992 FORD F150-F350 trucks and Ford E150-E350 vans with tilt steering. The common part that breaks is the lower actuator rod, this prevents the push rod that connects to the ignition switch mounted on the lower steering column to work properly. Below are the OEM part numbers for the parts in the mechanism. Dorman products is an aftermarket supplier of the lower actuator rod for the ignition. The lock cylinder is usually not the culprit when experiencing this failure.
