Ignition Problem?? Need help

So recently I had to replace the shift tube in my truck (2002 F350) and removing the ignition cylinder and steering column was required in order to replace the shift tube. Ever since replacing the shift tube I've had an on and off problem with turning the key all the way on and the engine doesn't crank (I'm guessing it had something to do with me removing the ignition cylinder). Usually it will eventually start... until last week I was doing a leaf cleanup and the truck wouldn't start after I was done. After hours of trying to get it started I decided to leave it sitting overnight at my client's house and try again the next morning and it still wouldn't start so I had it towed to my house where I replaced the starter. After replacing the starter everything was fine again until today when it randomly wouldn't crank when I turned the key all the way on. After trying again and again for about 20 min it started out of nowhere, so then I shut it off to see if it would start again after and it wouldn't. I tried again for about 5-10 more minutes and it started again. I'm really stumped as to what is causing the problem and I need to figure it out ASAP... Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks guys!
