Yes and no.
The no start can be from it, but the spinning is more likely a dirty connection not allowing enough power to get to the starter to kick it out into the flywheel.
There are wear ports on the keyswitch linkage and I have seen repair kits for that slop. The steering column is a Saginaw column, the same as lots of GM's use.
