CJ7 ignition lock

Does anyone know how to change the ignition lock on an 85 CJ7 with tilt wheel? Or do you know of a site that has step by step on how to? Or, maybe a fix for mine>>> it's not really bad, just that the key won't lock it. This is not good because it can be started without the key now. The key does look very worn. Maybe a copy of the key????

I went to my local auto parts store and bought a replacement assembly - it takes the GM one and costs less than $20. There should be a magic hole in the column that lets you insert a small pointy object and with the key in the right position, remove the whole assembly. Since I couldn't get it to come out via the hole in the column, I removed my steering wheel to access the unit and once you figure out how to get the keeper to depress it is an easy job.
