Its easy, google found it my first go remove steering colums upper and lower shroud flat head then stick key in turn to acc(first position) then stick a flat head in the detent(basically a plastic flap that bends slightly) and pull it out. Its on this site somewhere people where removing them to drill them out because of stuck keys

Everything is together, turms over... But wony fire. Cant find the plug for the crank position sensor and 2nd o2 sensor. Was it another paet of the wiring? Trans harness or radiator harness still needed?

glassmaker where are you..... if i remember right you told me i would not need the ATX harness to do the swap now im finding that i do a little input would be helpful, cause i dont have plug ends to go into the second O2 sensor or the crank position sensor so im not getting any fire... other than that all is well, turning over fuel pump is on ect ect. im hoping thats part of the wiring that i need cause the wiring harness doesnt have those parts. wish someone could confirm thats what i need.

I'm pretty sure I didn't need the trans harness. There should have been a small harness for the engine, then the main engine harness that goes back to the fuel pump
