61 Implala upper steering coupling
Inside the coupling under the bearings the manual says there are a couple of "wave washers" to tension the bearings. I don't remember removing any wave washers and there really isn't clearance for them. I don't see any wear pattern where there were any in there. Does anyone know if these were on every model?
I am not sure what you mean. If you are referring to the nickel sized plug in the bottom of the bell shaped housing, that is not what I asked. The steering shaft has two ***** at the lower end that go into a bell shaped housing. There are two square bearings that sit on the *****. These bearings slip into grooves in the bell shaped housing. Under these bearings are shown to be little washers approximately 1/4" in diameter. These push the bearings out as a thrust bearing would push on whatever it is supposed to load. Did all of these come with those little wavy washers?
