I have a little problem with the ignition switch in my Spitfire.
Let me preface this query by saying that my Haynes manual does not adequately
model of Spitfire(74) on this issue ... only later years, for some reason.
My ignition switch is the kind located low on the column, with an integrated
wheel locking mechanism. The other day, I could not get the key to advance

bracket bolts holding the switch to the column, it now works - most of the time
- but I
can't seem to gain access to the other bolt to take the switch fully off the
explore the situation further. Do I need to do lotz more dismantling?
On another (unrelated) issue, I just got the car back from the alignment guys,
though it wasn't far off to begin with, the improvement is quite noticeable.
getting additional speed from a nice smooth roll. I bring this up only to
that if your car doesn't go DEAD EVEN STRAIGHT with your hands off the wheel,
giving up speed (and tread) to some cross-eyed tires!
