This is the new lower bearing on the steering shaft. Slipped on real nice. I did pack the bearing with some Premium Red Grease before the instal. Even with the crack in the plastic on the old one I think it could be used. ( at least for a short time )

I did not know that you could install the steering column up-side down Undecided Undecided. It looks good but you can push the wheel down and touch the seat. If you push it up, it will only let you you put the wheel in-line with the column. Cowabunga!!! This love hate relationship has got to stop Embarrassed Embarrassed
I have the rest of the day to get this fixed Grin Cheesy Wink wish me luck Cool Cool
