Steering Lever and Support

Does the streeing have a taper shaft that the steering lever fits on or is it just a straight shaft.
I am fixing the play in my steering little by little , I saw the the Steering lever flops up and down.

Are you referring to part #10?

The steering arm (10), is tapered, as is the splined shaft from the gear box.

Those are not tapered.

Mine did the same thing. I removed the nut, added a shim/spacer to take up some of the slack/slop.

While you are there, make sure #4 is not broken or cracked and about to break. Not a pretty picture when replacing that one.

I thought I could do the shims , that why I needed to know if it was tapered. Thanks for the Help Guys.
