boss kit troubles...

hey guys,
i recently purchased a Autotechnica boss kit and when i put it on it had a lot of play left around the collumn. i as thinking about putting a 3/8 washer behind the nut to stop the play. i was just wondering if anyone else has had this kind of trouble and what they did to remidy this??

thanks,
Ben

You could try a SAAS boss kit, They have the same mounting holes for the wheel. I have a wood autotechnica wheel and the boss kit I got for it wouldnt cancel the blinkers. After I got a SAAS one I had no problems with the blinkers but I had to file away about 2mm of the skirt at the bottom of the boss as it contacted the steering column when the nut was tightened up properly.
Regds,
Tote
