everything is put back together and you just need to align the lock cylinder teeth to the teeth in the column correctly ?
the inner gear the cylinder will connect into should only go in one way as it has one big notch in it to be aligned one way
is that aligned correctly ?
if that is aligned correctly then the best way to time the ignition lock cylinder is to turn on the ignition to the run position with a pair of needle nose pliers turning the inner gear to the run position then slide in the ignition lock cylinder with the ignition key in the cylinder and turn the ignition lock cylinder to visually the run position once it slides all the way in then see if the ignition lock cylinder will turn off all the way and the key comes out then make sure the ignition lock cylinder goes to the crank position and the engine cranks
if it will not crank slide out the lock cylinder and turn it back one tooth then try it again
it can take a few quick times of trial and error but once it is timed correctly the key should come out and the ignition lock cylinder when turned all the way the engine should crank
how are you making out ?
