I replaced the ignition switch yesterday evening. It needed it badly. I tried to remove the wiring harness and with barely any force, the entire plastic part came off with the harness. All is working beautifully now. I even have key-back accessory now! I'll post carnage pictures later.

Try posting this in the 6.0 forum.

This is the IDI as in OLD engines... the best suggestion any of us have with a 6.0 is to get rid of it and buy an old IDI
1988 F250, 7.3L IDI, regular cab, long bed, 5spd ZF
Mods: ATS turbo, 3.5 inch exhaust, superduty springs front and rear, 4 gauge A-pillar pod: boost, pyro, coolant and 4th spot is switches; was 2wd, now 4wd with Dana 60 front axle
next projects: fix/complete the 3.5 inch exhaust (tailpipe exits waaaaaay to low, and needs to be extended out from under the bed) swap to a rust free cab
