Default Re: steering box rebuild.

Speaking from experience, I had to try the needle bearings when they first hit the market along with my touring buddy (we both did). I was concerned right away with the fit of the sector shaft and the housing with needle bearings (not tight like bushings). I ran them for a while and then didn't like the adjustment and pulled them out (both of us did) and went back to bushings honed to fit the shaft (no play when honed). That was over 27 years ago and still working great. About time to re-do steering, engine, brakes, tires, and trans bearings. Just my experience with them. Bruce
