This part of the kit is the main wear area on 1967-1969 busses, the kit mounts to the throttle pedal then goes down through the cab floor to the main swivel section, these kits have sealed roller bearings that allow everything to rotate nice and smoothly. Kit also has a double ended rose joint rod that if you feel needs adjusting you can.
The kit has recently been uprated with a NEW stainless steel top hat section (That`s the part that is usually welded to your floor that the kit bolts to ) These come as standard with every kit , you will need to remove the original steel mount then bolt this stainless mount up in its place . Comes with 4 stainless steel bolts nuts and washers .(Just make sure when bolting up , the push rod from the pedal is centred in the hole in the floor) it will be if the plate is centred over the large hole .
If you look at the image with the mounting plate with the large hole in this as you would look down on the kit installed on your cab floor , this image will help you work out positions of the holes . Lay the plate down inside cab on the floor as the image then drill through the plate .
Also these joints are encased inside a rubber boot to keep all the crud and dirt out as your front wheel is situated right behind the joint.
Plus there is now a tiny 8mm spanner included in the kit, to be used when fitting the small balljoint to the throttle pedal (doesn’t seem much but an absolute time saver, believe us).
