    Whats the acceptable radial play on the standard steering wheel??

    Strictly speaking, there is no prescribed limit on radial play as there shouldn’t be any, so any perceptible play is excessive. Having said that, the Prefect has had about a 1/16 to 3/32 inch vertical movement for the entire sixteen years I’ve had it. The bush at the top of the column is grease-soaked felt, although I’ve heard – but haven’t tried – that the plastic bush from an original type Mini will fit.

    Hi JAN, I too have a small vertical movement (123e). Do you happen to know if the 105e column is the same as Prefect & a mini bush would/could fit?

    As far as I know, Brian, the inside and outside column DIAMETERS are the same, but as I said, I’ve never tried fitting a Mini bush so I don’t know if it fits; it’s just something I heard.
