I'm just finishing up rebuilding my steering box and upgrading to a 105 series sector shaft and I have a quick question regarding spline engagement on the steering shaft. No matter how hard I try, I can't seem to get more than 3/4" of engagement in the splines at the u-joint and both ends seem to be machined for far more engagement. Am I missing something obvious or is this completely normal?



Cheers,
Doug
 
IIRC there is extra spline length at both ends, I just slide the flexible assembly to a middle point and tightened the clamp bolts.
