Thanks. I plan on trying your idea. I know that the bearing base has plenty of room to slide around. Unfortunately when I started this project, I didn't know that the placement of this bearing was so critical. I will move it back a little tonight and see what that does. I also still have the original bearing so I plan on measuring the height from the base to the shaft centerline, if there is a difference, I will shim up as you did.
It baffles me that such a large company like FORD that makes so many popular trucks would make a system that is so simple, so prone to mis-adjustment.
