i need to cut the steering culumn shaft to machine it to put on a custom ishaft. but i ran into a problem with the culumn. the shaft slides in and out around 1", which im not sure where it comes from. (silver part of the shaft, when in its at the magenta line) has it to be like this, that the rag joint could be assembled? or is it a malfunction? seems that the lower bearing is not original anymore... anyone knows how it should be? what would be the better position for the shaft when i cut it: in or out? thanks for advice.
