I need to replace the wire between the Ignition switch and the coil. This is the wire that is in the steel cover. I removed the tumbler which was no help.

To replace the electrolock wire you will have to remove the back of the lock cylinder housing with the armored cable.

Tim, you must be the fellow I just spoke with on the phone. The book from the Filling Station will give you the step by step how to. It's money well spent. <CLICK>
