ignition tumbler problems

Just bought a 78 CJ-5. The kid I bought it from said the previous owner broke the key off in the tumbler and hadn't replaced it when he bought it. The kid always started it with a screw driver because he could never get the tumbler installed right. I tried again and after finding John Strenk's guide on how to replace the tumbler I realized that there is a little white plastic gear missing from inside the steering column. What part is this and where do I find one?

Thanks,

Jed

The steering column was sourced by Jeep from General Motors. Anyplace that sells parts for GM columns should have the part you need. You can always stop by the junkyard and look for a similar steering column in a GM and get the parts yo need.

Search JeepForum or use your Google-fu and you will find threads on GM steering column repairs.
