    Yes, you answered my question. Did you use a steel or bronze bushing? Thanks Joe
  15. 1988 -520H

    Hi, I have a 520 H that the steering wheel was not center with the front wheels, I was able to center it by turning the wheel then slipping the steering shaft gear past the other gear. I see that it is worn, either the steering shaft or the lower support block. My question is has anyone ever attempted to fit a bushing into either of these parts as a repair or am I better off replaceing the parts .
