If you can't turn it you will have to drill out the pin.

Re: ignition cylinder 91 bronco

your better off drilling out the cylinder and tumblers (keyway) I believe the pin your refering to is hardened steel. The column is made of aluminum and Which if drilled will go easy and then the column will be junk. I did one once with a locksmith in an 84 it took us about an hour. you have to have the key turned foward to get the pin to retract to remove the cylinder.
