Default need a diagram for replacing a ignition switch in a 99 ranger 3.0

i desperately need a step by step set of instructions and possibly pics to replace the ignition switch in my 99 ranger 3.0! im not sure but im wondering does the ignition switch just send power to the starter or does it send a signal to send a spark or fuel at the same time?

Does the truck have a pats key system on it??? If so, look @ the theft indicator, if it's flashing fast when you try to start it, it's a pats issue, not a switch, starter, ect...

i think this might be the thread i'm looking for. thanks wily. i have a couple of follow up questions to my 'introduction', uhm, a) what's torque spec for the retaining screws? and uhm, before i get upside down in the drivers seat so i can see the bottom of the dash, is there any additional pertinent information available? like.... which screw-driver/sockets to use, and or the number and location of such retainers. and if the plastic-dress-up stuff is folded together in some ornate origami fashion... cause getting under the dash is a high-risk procedure all by itself with a head full of dread-locks.
