First rule is look close, make notes and take digital pics iwhen you are taking something apart.
I didn't do that when I pulled my shimano 600 headset apart for a rebuild.
Now it's back together...but the lock nut shows thread....or in other works it is not screwed down all the way on the steerer.
Is this ok or should I really see no threads?
If it is not ok any thoughts on why everthing might be too long? My only thoght is that I put the bearing races in upside down.
any ideas appreciated
