Questions: I purchased this Gear Box tube and worm gear for my early CJ2A. Mine also has the horn ring that mounts on this shaft. I purchased the brass horn ring from you also. The shaft is too large in diameter for the brass and plastic to fit?
Question By: Elvis Hood on Jan 15 2017 11:31 PM
The rubber lined brass horn contact (A302 &A302B) are used together. The bushing must slide down the shaft. It is a very tight fit. We usually take a bit off the rubber and grease to get it to slide down.

Questions: Where can I get the retaining clips for the worm bearings that you show in the video? All the standard e-clips I have found seem to large OD to fit in the housing and upper cover clearance holes, and retaining rings are too small to hold well.
Question By: Anonymous on Apr 27 2015 12:00 AM
They really are not necessary. When loading the ball bearing just use heavy duty axle grease to keep them in place. Then once the worm gear is inserted it will hold them in position.

Questions: Does this have the brass horn bushing on it?
Question By: Anonymous on Oct 4 2011 12:00 AM
No, Its part number: A302B You also may want to order A302 as well if you need the contact on the outer steering column.

Questions: Does Kaiser sell a replacement for the "lower cover and horn wire tube"? If not, would welding on a new tube be the easiest solution? My tube is about 1 inch long and looks like it was sheared/cut off in the case, while your video shows it to be 18-24 inches long.
