    I just finished swapping old pin style center arm for the "NEW" style tapered unit. There is, as I have read, an adjusting sequence for that arm/pivot and ....Would someone please repeat it?
    If you wanna see pics of my swap, I'll try to post them.
    Thanks,
    Ed :)

    I tighten them, back it off a half turn, and make sure there is no slop after backing it off, and if there is, then I bring it back in a 'flat' at a time, so long as it still moves freely, and will allow the steering to return to center..

    Good luck!
