79 jeep Cj lock cylinder removal

I have the column open and can not see how to get the lock cylinder out so that I can replace it with a new one. This is a used column but it was in lock when I got it and didn't have a key. So it's stuck in lock which is why I'm replacing it. I don't see a screw holding it in like the videos I've seen

The circled slot on the cylinder needs pushed in.

There may be cast flashing in the slot that needs cleaned out. Also it takes something very thin to go deep enough.
