Installing steering wheel in my 60. Manual says to follow 58 manual procedure. I have the 58 manual but missing chapter #4 on steering! Specifically, is there a sleeve/spacer that fits over the steering shaft? It would put pressure on the steering column upper bearing (with horn contact) and the bottom of the steering wheel. Maybe someone has the 58 procedure they would share. Thanks, Bill

When I ordered my new upper bearing a spring came with it but I wanted to use the sleeve but it wouldn’t work with the new bearing so I had to use the spring instead. Lamar
