I am finally putting the front suspension together. I am stopped at this point because I am not sure how tight to screw the trunion in. I read my Bentley manual, and that was not of much help. I do have Dale's article. I filled the trunion 1/4 with gear oil. I tried screwing the trunion on to the spindle axle as tight as I could get it by hand. This put it in its normal position to be installed. Obviously this is not correct, because there would not be a complete range of motion. I decided to back it off one complete turn. Does this sound correct?

Another thing I do not understand is how to position the stop sleeve on the trunion. It is offset, but how is this positioned on the trunion?

Any help would greatly be appreciated.

you some assist.

Back it off one turn and on my TR3 the stop is round...just screwed it into place.

Kevin-

I think there is a measurement somewhere for that stop, but on my TR4 all I did was turn the steering wheel lock to lock and checked for interference. I had one tire rim rubbing on one side so I adjusted the stop to eliminate it. Easiest done on jack stands.

It sounds like I am doing what I am supposed to do. Thanks for all of your input. Almost everything on this car is a learning experience for me, and it is always nice to get confirmation that I am doing it correctly.
