I'm not sure if its the same as it is on mine but isnt there a release pin somewhere on the cylinder you have to press to release the old one and let the new one in? Or does a 65 not have that?

Did you take the old one out properly?  You need to use a paperclip end to push into the little hole and turn your key to the ACC position.  The whole thing should come out so you can replace it with the new one.

If you have lost the keys, then the old one has to be taken out with a drill.   You need to replace the entire switch.  Sorry.....
