Can not get my new ignition lock installed on my 1968 Mustang.

Removed old lock without ony problems by turning the key counterclockwise while inserting a paper clip into the poke hole on the lock face.....Now I can not get the new lock to snap in place. I inserted the new lock and turned clockwise with the key but it will not snap in place and I can not figure out why. Any help appreciated.

I hear ya man! I can't remember exactly how I did it, but I do remember that it was a pain, I fidled aroud with it until I got it right....took me a while though!
I did find some thing that my help..out of the Vintage Mustang Forum..."insert the key in the cylinder and turn the key to the accessory position. Place the lock and key in the ignition switch, depress the pin slightly and turn the key counterclockwise. Push the lock cylinder into the switch. Turn the key to check the lock cylinder operation"

hope it helps...
