What other steering column fits the GTV?

My ignition problems turned worse this past week.

I cleaned the ignition and the key turns as it should. I can start the car(well it does not start because the key code light is on...so it just swings the starter) via the round black switch at the back of the steering column ignition barrel.

But there was a washer and a little piece of broken plastic that fell out of the bottom of the barrel.

when assembled the ignition turns as it should but the mechanism inside the barrel(part of the steering column) does not turn with the turn on the key/ignition...so it does not turn the round black switch at the back of the barrel.

What do I do now? What other Alfa Romeo steering column fits directly to a GTV using ALL components that fit onto a GTV's steering column?

Or is that too drastic?
Can the mechanism inside the column be replaced?

I'm planning on taking the steering column off this weekend...but it seems like a mammoth task.

The lock mechanism is separate from the column. It might be held on with security bolts that need drilling out.
