Default 1992 ranger ignition switch

Hello everyone, I have been working on my ranger for a day... I have no power to anything, battery is new etc... Best bet is it is the ignition switch. I have been told that it is the actual keyway, but when I look for the part I see a coulple of different items.
It looks like a basic fix if I could figure out what part it is and how to change it out without having to pull my steering off if possible. any ideas?

you just have to pull the black covers off it will be on the same side as the key lock

Default Fixed it

Turned out to by my ignition actuator... couple of screws and bolts my steering column dropped down and I could reach the actuator assembly. Took about 30 minutes and a 20 minute run to autozone $10.95 and I was back home, installed in less than 20 minutes. Thanks everyone!
