 Maybe the next person that ships you a part from the US can pack it with a gray scotchbrite?

I have a problem with the steering stem stop. It does not stop.

I think it comes from that washer under my new bearing (came with the bearing set)
It seems to be too thick and now the whole lower clamp is a bit too far away from the frame. So the stop gussets slide under the head frame

Here is a pic before it went into the frame.

I will have to take out the front fork but honestly I+m a little bit ........., well how do you say ?

Then, I got a nice original 2-hole airbox from Steve.
In red with lovely patina but no cracks.

So I have a new dilemma:
take this one as a genuine part and have it new painted by Menno or take a new repro box?

Go with the genuine box and have it painted, always better than re-pop.
IMHO,

No question, keep the original one and repaint this air box, it looks to be in great condition.
Best,

I set up 2157 with the Timken bearing kit,  if i remember correctly, i did not use that thick washer.  For whatever the reason, the steering head would loosen up with some riding,  i had to very slightly tighten the ring nut under the upper clamp a couple times before the steering head stopped loosening up.  If i had it to do over again, i would have kept the original ball bearing setup, but the races were pitted and had some serious detent.  I would suggest removing that thick washer and see how that affects your steering head setup.

i think "pissed" is the word.....  if it makes you feel any better, i understand.  i assembled the spring forks on my 27 H-D incorrectly and had installed them to the rigid fork and then had installed the entire assembly to the steering head.  all the parts were painted and so i had to be very careful to not scratch the paint when i took the forks apart.  the spring forks have 2 springs in each tube along with 4 more heavy springs that go between the rigid and spring forks that have to be compressed using a special spring compressing tool.  the springs were loaded with grease and are under a few hundred pounds of pressure in each leg.  i had the plunger in each fork tube upside down, so i had to take them completely apart and put them in the correct direction.

Shit happens and that sounds much more annoying.

I will try to fix that with 2,3 or 4 slim washers.

Got parcel today. Hex14 oil filter bolt came in.

Curious.... I fitted a taper bearing head set and DID use the thick plain washer - and everything lined up just so. All I can remember is the kit had part number SSH750, not sure what brand it was.
