Default Stuck tumbler?

So I picked up a 87 yj this weekend
It's been sitting quite a while
Well while we were getting it running the key stuck in the on/run position
From what I've read I need to replace the tumbler?
I tried spray lube hoping something was just stuck
And also tried moving the shifter around (auto) with no luck
Wondering if anyone else has ever had this problem

I haven't had that issue myself. But it being that old it may just need to be taken out and cleaned and lubricated.

Usually isn't too hard to remove at tumbler assembly, especially since you have the key.



note, i didn't watch, but hopefully it is correct.

Ya from what I've read it's not too hard just requires a couple special tools to remove the steering wheel
