      If you can, grab a picture. It's been a while since I had mine apart - hard to remember what it looked like!

      That is the part that I replaced.

      The new shaft is 2 piece - one slides inside the other, allowing it to collapse in the event of an accident. The rag joint servers the same purpose.

      However, my rag joint was 20 years old, and I was concerned it might fail unexpectedly.

      Right, I'm just curious if the flaming river set screws misses the hole that was originally used for the original shaft. I guess I'm only 2 bolts away from finding out anyhow. :chug:

      Oh, I see what you are asking.

      I don't remember. They must have, because I don't remember there being an issue.
