    I need to install my new ignition switch. I need advise on how to preform this surgery before pulling everything apart. I installed the EB kit without a problem but when looking around, it seems there must be a trick or two involved with getting the old one out and new one in. Locating the harness is easy but the removal of the switch itself seems daunting. Any advise is appreciated
