Key Tumbler wont turn after replacement

Turns fine until it is put back into the switch assembly, then it will not turn. Anyone familiar with installing the tumbler back into the ignition key lock assembly?

Memory is not my strong suit but I recall this is symptom if electrical portion is turned 180 degrees from correct orientation...

Or possibly is steering wheel 'locked'?

Good luck

Just kept taking it apart and reassembling until it magically worked.
