Hi, Newbie here :)
My RMK has play in the steering and it looks like at the end of the steering shaft the bell crank is loose.

Can't figure out how to tighten the heim joint or replace it. Seems to be too tight to get in there with a double jointed extension and I can't see how to access from below..
Anyone have any ideas? The service manual does not go into that level of detail.

Thanks!

Update..4-16-21 The issue turned out to be the lower steering arm bushing. Bought a replacement for about $10.00. Installation was a pain since the motor has to be moved forward about 2 inches to get to the mounting. That required pretty much getting the motor ready to remove by disconnecting everything and lifting the motor forward.. Once installed, the steering is now tight.. make sure you lube these steering bushing zerk fittings so you don't have to go through this hassle.
