Key lock cylinder won't turn to start/run
I'm new to the forum and here's my first question. I have a 1984 CJ7, 258, 5 speed with a tilt steering wheel. Yesterday I couldn't move the key from the run position to the lock position although I could turn the engine off. Wtih some luck I did finally get to the locked position and was able to get the key out. Now I can't get to the start position! Do you think replacing the lock cylinder will solve this problem or there something else going on inside the steering column? Thanks for any help.
I just slap or hit the column and it unlocks the key position, but I can always start or stop the Jeep
