After removal of steering last spring to investigate ignition lock syndrome I found that the problem was not with the barrel or the switch, but with the lever that pull out the locking pin from a dented ring in the steering wheel itself. There is a dent every 1/2 in. so it should lock in any position. To solve the ignition lock problem I sprayed a generous amount of dry lubricant (graphite) in the pulling lever slot, you have to remove the steering to see it. Good as new.
