    I have noticed that the slightest movement towards the off position kills the engine. Its not like the switch is moving normally and there doesn't seem to be a detent between run and off. Would this problem be in the actual electrical switch or the keyed part?

    Sounds like the switch part. For my 65 A-body the switch is cheap (~11?). Never looked for my C-body but could be the same PN. If you have a 70's car, it might be in the steering column and much different (always tell us your car when asking).
