91' Ignition tumbler stuck


On tuesday my ignition tumbler got stuck. I tried to turn the key, but after a while, I gave up. The key wouldnt budge, no chance. I gave up and started with the drilling and screwdriving. I managed to get the outer ring thingy loose. I can now turn the outer part with the key hole in it, so I am able to line up the holes. Im wondering if this is enough to release the tumbler, or do I need the inner ignition to also rotate to ACC?
This is the piece I've managed to rotate to ACC position
