On the '58, the ignition pushes through the dash and the bezel twists into the groove on the switch to hold in in. There is a kind of 'bell shaped' piece that the switch goes through behind the dash to hold the spring while supporting it against the back of the dash. It also keeps the switch from turning when you turn the key.

This is the piece I was describing.

Fireball; Here is a couple more pictures and I'll try to help, this switch is from my 59 but I think they are the same or close.
The first picture is the hole in the dash notice the two notches top and bottom for indexing the switch.

This next picture shows the parts. Notice the cup shaped part has two **** poking out these are what match the hole in the dash.

In the third picture you can see the tab on the back of the cup that indexes to the switch body in a slot right above the teeth of the key. the spring threads on to the switch body and then the cup goes over the spring. Hold these up to the dash compressing the spring, to bring the switch body proud of the dash. and the bezel has two ears on it that enter the front of the switch body one up and one down and then rotate CW a quarter turn.

Clear as mud??

OOPs I got the second and third picture reversed.

No special tools required other than fingers! It's just as teddy has shown and told! It does fit a little snug as spring tension is all that is holding it in place. All these little things about these old trucks are easy once you have done them a time or two!

Ignition Assembly Installation

This was helpful for me too. I was having the same problem with my 58 but finally managed to get that bezel twisted on. However now the key barely turns and I'm afraid I'm going to break it. Do you need to put some grease or lubricant on the outside of the ignition switch before you put it in the mount?

No grease needed on the outside, you might try some WD or equivalent on the inside where the key goes though. Those little pieces of brass inside can stick together after sitting for extended periods.

for those people looking for a cup because theirs are missing might want to check right below the key hole behind the dash. seems it might fall off when you pull the ignition out. ask me how i know! .....when reinstalling, pull out the gauges so you can push the switch in coming at it from the top side instead of trying to get the spring compressed from the bottom. much easier!
