Welcome, sounds like you may want to check the throwout bearing for the grinding sound.

For the second problem, does the Bronco have a lever you need to depress to release the key?

Might be a dumb suggestion, but sometimes the ignition switch won't turn if the steering wheel is tight against the wheel lock. Try turning the steering wheel a little each way and see if the key will turn.

thanks, ive tryed to move the wheel already and it dost seem to be the culprit, and it is on of those that have the buttons to remove the key, ive been on e-bay and have noticed that a few of the broncoIIs around 87 have had the steering colum replaced, is there a defect in the manufacturing of the colums, or is it a coinsidence?

Probably just some worn parts in there.
