4. When parts were received I removed the Flange Lock Nut,​ 7/​16-20 with the 7/16 socket and ratchet, pried off the Steering Pinion Gear, with a flat head screwdriver.

6. Had to remove the Steering Support Bracket (6 self tapping screws): tools 5/16 socket, ratchet, 6" extension.
7. Pulled bracket down off of the steering shaft, washer and worn hex flanged bearing now accessible. with the steering support bracket down I tighten or replaced any loose or worn parts. Checked the hex cutout in the support bracket for ware, was acceptable. Centered the steering wheel.
8. Placed the hex flanged bearing in placed, placed washer on steering shaft, hex bearing, bracket, another washer, pushing the steering bracket in place on the steering shaft, replaced the 6 self tapping screws, center steering gear on steering plate ( used stubby Phillip screwdriver ), replaced the pinion steering gear and self locking nut.
