Re-opening this old thread.
I've got the breeze lower & the tri-states upper (when I was ordering that's the best I could do) & I'm using a Flaming River rack & universal. BTW, the Flaming River universal is required for the my 4.6 DOHC setup as it has a better over-all range of motion angle-wise than the nicer (but more restrictive) Breeze Universal.
Anyway, I have no clips for these shafts, is that a problem? Seems fine to me, but maybe it will rattle?
Next, the intermidiate tubular shaft (flat on two sides & the upper column slides into it) has no 'indentation dots' on it like my427sc's has. Basically all I have is the upper shaft, the lower shaft, the pillow blocks and two locking collars - a big one & a little one.
On the collars, where do these go and the related question is which way do the bearings in the pillow blocks install? There's a lip on them that, when the collars are sort of turned onto them, lock up on the shaft tight without even setting the allen set screw.
Anyway, this is probably all very confusing to you (it is to me). Any suggestions? Thx.
