How to get the ignition switch out?And plug on Steeringtube.

Hello,
in my Cj I have the column shifter( ca. from 1978). Now I can soon start with the new electrics, and so I had the idea to expand the original ignition switch. Instead of the original, I wish to mount the supplied EZ ignition switch. Is that possible?
Or is the shift lever then blocked??? It is now blocked without the key. If it is possible, how do I get the original ignition switch out ? And the other thing is, can someone tell me how the original plug on the Steeringtube evidence is? Possibly, a wire drawing wich wire are for Turn signals, horn, etc. on that plug there Thank you & greetings Mario

Well the ignition switch is separate from the key lock. The switch is just bolted to the steering column and very easy to remove. The Lock is a little more difficult and you need a steering wheel puller and lock plate compressor to make it easy on yourself.
