After putting on my new Grant wheel Monday night, it became obvious that the upper column bearing needs to be replaced. I replaced the lower one when Stanger rebuilt the gear box.

question: is this as easy as removing the wheel and hub where the turn signal lever plugs in and just pushing the 2 pieces down the steering shaft ?

and yes it was that easy...

Next up - I installed my new wooden Grant steering wheel and pressed in the rolled bearings that are supposed to actuate the turn signal switch as the wheel turns.

Problem is they hit the ears of the plastic switch whether the signal is on or not.

HAs anyone else experienced this when installing a Grant Wheel ?

hmm, the cam ring bracket on my 65 looked to be about twice as long as the Grant mounting plate. So I used the pins, a call to grant may be in order.

Yes, it is twice as long. You'll have to cut it down to size; been there, done that. Before I did that, I had all sorts of problems, including one with the clutch, believe it or not!
