89 Bronco, ignition spins freely, replaced ignition key lock with no results
It sounds like the rack is broken inside the column.The gears would bind from old,hard grease and cause the already thin pot metal rack to break.The steering wheel and the upper column has to come apart to replace the rack,brass gear and the actuator/gear.
