1953-1962 Steering Column Upper Bearing Installation Tips

Upper Bearing Installation 53-62a

When installing the upper bearing lightly tap the bearing into the tube.  Make sure you have the horn wire at the 6 O’Clock position.  Failure to do so can result in the steering shaft rubbing the wire.   Do not over seat this bearing when installing, if the brass upper contact touches the tube you’ll short out the ground making the horn blow.
