(7) Install the bearing adjusting bolts (2) but do not tighten them.
g. Adjustment. The steering roll axle shaft bearings are adjusted by means of the bearing adjusting plates (3) and
bolts (2). Turn the adjusting bolts clockwise to tighten the bearings and counterclockwise to loosen them. The two
adjusting bolts on each side of the axle shaft (6) adjust the bearings in the entire steering roll assembly. Adjust the
bearings so that there is no excessive side play in the bearings. Make sure that the bearings are not too tight or binding.
