Guys, it has been ages since I was here, need some info on removal of a stock ignition switch for a 1949 suburban ignition switch and no keys are currently available, do these simply unbolt from dash then remove 3 wires? I can get key made at locksmith for $20 if I bring him the ignition switch, I just can't recall after 20 years not touching one. I will post pictures of the runner/driver burb I'm moving for storage. Thanks guys for any help!

The bracket attaches to the rear of the dash.
As I dimly reall, the switch is twisted to catch the two posts.

I do not recall if there is an attachment nut/scew(s) for the switch to the bracket.

Two clutch head screws hold the ears of the switch on. Disconnect the battery ground! Loosen the 2 screws somewhat and turn the switch counterclockwise a bit and pull it out.
