Default Ignition switch install into bezel

When I bought my t bird the previous owner installed a universal ignition switch because the original died. The universal ignition switch did not fit the dash bezel so I went ahead and purchased the correct one. How does the ignition switch mount to the bezel? I think I am missing some pieces that hold it in place. Any pictures or parts diagrams would be very helpful.

You need the chrome bezel, the plastic ignition spacer and the chrome lock nut.

Previous owner had the pieces and actually gave them to me. I was missing the lock nut that holds the ignition switch into the bezel.

Thanks for letting us know how your problem was resolved. John went to some effort to show a picture of your setup with part numbers.

We are here to help solve problems in an open forum format, for the benefit of all who seek this information. It's free.

Many posts go unanswered after we research and offer sound advice. Typically, new people ask a question then they never check back. This is frustrating and fruitless for everyone.

So please, if you have resolved your problem, extend the courtesy of letting us know how you resolved it. If the project is on 'hold', let us know that, too. Restorers from all over the world research our site for specific answers to your problem because they may have the same car with similar issues. - Dave

Dave:
I agree with you. It's always nice to know if something works or not.
