    300X Steering shaft collar too loose?

    So i installed a TBM steering unit on my 300x and still noticed a tad bit of play in the steering shaft. After taking it apart i found the steering shaft nut was finger loose. I see in the service manual the nut is only supposed to be 26 in-lb. I tightened it by hand as tight as it could get it and used the next set of holes on the that circle plate. Now the steering is too tight and if loosen it im back at the original holes

    Also i unplugged the KSS from the Ecu. I felt underneath the steering shaft and traced the wires back to the ECU. Anyone know if that is ok i read in another thread they did it a different way??
    There's a discussion of it here http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/show...=147464&page=4

    If u look at the. Steering plate where the steering cable is connected you will find a sensor and a wire. Trace that down to the ecu it will be a very large triangle looking plug with two wire just unplug it Can hide sometimes. It's the largest single connection plug in there besides what goes into the ecu. Also the plug u are looking for is white.

    the steering nuts are trial and error it also has alot to do with how tight you do the single large nut as this also squishes it altogether.

    Easy fix just drill two new holes between the existing ones and cut new threads as per original on the adjuster ring plate then you will always get the adjustment where you want it, i done it, it works fine.

    Thanks guys i managed to get it perfect with taking apart the shaft several times. I have zero play now and the steering is very smooth =) Also found the KSS 3 prong plug (thanks fire).

    Hey Ultra, any chance you'd post a walk through on now you did it, for those of us that don't have the repair manual memorized?
