confused Steering column play

Hi there!
I've got some play in the steering. I had a new rack put on and the column re-welded but there's play at the steering wheel end. I can turn it slightly before there's any movement in the column and wheels. I'm assuming that the mechanic didn't re-pack it when he put it back together. I can't seem to find anywhere that sells new bushes to pack it and someone did mention packing it with felt can sort it.... Anyone got any ideas please?!

Re: Steering column play

What year is it? Have you talked to the mechanic about the looseness? He may remember something he missed, or what else could be wrong.

There was a felt bush on certain Cortina models . If you go here Welcome to the Ford Cortina MK1 Data Book , down near the foot of page there is a link re. column bush .
