The subject of how the gear needs to engage the ignition actuator has come up enough, and the illustrations in the shop manuals aren't very clear, so I thought I would show how they are supposed to engage. The first two are with the gear setting on the actuator at both ends of the actuator and properly engaged. The number of teeth in the gear and actuator are the same. The other two pictures are top views with the gear positioned alongside of the actuator. The tapered pin at the end of the actuator is the spring loaded steering wheel lock.
