More than likely the rack and septor I think it's called. It is the gears behind the key cylinder that moves the actuator rod to the ignition switch. Here is a picture but you can get them in the help section of most parts houses for $12 or so.

Make sure your cover ring around the column isnt putting pressure on the column. Im taking about the ring that covers the extra space on your dash. I know it sounds crazy but mine was pinching down causing my switch to bind! You need a steering wheel puller for the thing in your picture to remove it, unless you re-attach your wheel to it and pull really hard!!!!!!!!!But puller is best!

If I remember correctly you will need a puller to get the next piece off the shaft. Look very closely because there may be a keeper ring. if so it will have to be removed before you use a puller.

Just realized you had a picture, har99 is correct, steering wheel puller is the way to go. Then you are going run into the locking plate and you will need this tool. I have made make shift ones in the past but you can pick one of these up fairly cheap.

It's about half way down the page. You don't have a tilt column so that should be the extent of the special tools.
