For those of you that hate the tilt wheel on your Prowler

Well Guys I have been unhappy with my tilt wheel in my Prowler for a while so I did something about it. You can disasemble the tilt shaft and replace it with the upper shaft from a non tilt column but you will have to cut grooves in the new upper shaft for the snap rings(I did it with a hacksaw) that will hold it in place in the tilt part that wont tilt anymore. The snap rings held the tilt upper shaft in place. I did it and it is working great. Hope this helps someone.

mine was fine for the first couple seasons but now that I have some miles on it, its rattling and loose up and down motion. I'm going to take it apart to see if there's anything i can do to tighten it up, if not i'm going with joe's route.

There seems to be a lot of extra play in the tilt on Joes. Driving it compared to my non tilt was no bueno.
