In the event the steering gear lube should work up the mast jacket and leak from directional signal housing, remove the steering wheel, bearing and seat assembly at the top of the mast jacket. Place a felt collar #3721433 available in Service Parts Stock, over the shaft between the shaft and the mast jacket down to a position just above the steering gear housing. to further prevent the re-occurance of oil leakage, drain housing and refill with a lubricant of non-pouring consistency such as chassis lubricant.
