CHECK VERTICAL STEER PIVOT CLEARANCE - Continued
When adding or removing shims, only top pivot point is shimmed.
With new bearings (Figure 12, Item 1) and shims (Figure 12, Item 3) installed, total movement should
be 0.005 - 0.045 in. (0.13 - 1.14mm). On used roller, total vertical movement should not exceed 0.075 in.
(1.91 mm). If movement is too great, clearance can be reduced by adding spacers at vertical pin joints. If
movement is not enough, increase clearance by removing spacers at vertical pin joint.
If proper clearance cannot be obtained with spacers, steer pivot housing should be disassembled. Bushings
or any other worn components should be replaced.
