27 Unbolt the steering rack to allow the steering shaft to be slipped into place. Double check the installed length. You don’t want the steering shaft protruding into the joint (it should be flush with the joint casting) otherwise it will interfere with the operation of the joint and could cause a bind in the steering or system damage. Secure the set screws to mark the shaft, then remove the shaft one more time and drill an indent where the mark is to allow the set screw to seat during final assembly. Loctite the set screws and lock nuts to secure the assembly.
