How do you change a steering column?

My steering column is ****ed so I bought a used one from the auto wreckers out of either an 88 or 89 and I'm putting it into my 91, normally I have my dad to give me direction and tell me how to do it so I can do it myself but he's not around for a while and I have no idea what to do. Any help or adivce would be wonderful! Also how do you change the ignition tumblr(the key thing) becuase this one didn't come with keys

Removing steering column:
Disconnect negative battery cable.
While under the hood, there is a knuckle at the top of the steering column near the firewall. Remove that bolt so the shaft will slide out.
Remove the bezels around the speedo and tach.
Unplug all the plugs along the column. Make sure you feel around the top of the column.
Remove the plate around the column at the floor. I think you can remove the two bolts holding the plate halves together and remove just the top half.
Remove the two bolts holding the column to the bottom of the dash.
Slide column out :-)
It's been a while since I've done it but that should be pretty close.
