Steering arm shims

Postby Slappy » Tue Jan 27, 2004 7:14 am

While working on the front end I found that the steering arm had no shims between the arm and the bottom plate. I ordered shims but I'm not sure how much up and down play in the tie rod end is appropriate. Does anyone have any ideas here? Or perhaps someone can tell me the approximate shim thickness on their Cub to give me some idea. Thanks in advance.

You don't really want any. If the steering isn't binding, you are OK as is.
