That changes things.
I looked up the Tarmac specs before posting, and they currently have integrated headsets. Apparently they had standard pressed in headsets back in 07. To confirm it's a pressed-in (or conventional, or standard) headset, see pictures
, see if you can see the alloy cups above and below the headtube, as opposed to being recessed (integrated) within.
Most of the set-up and adjustment of conventional headsets is the same as with integrated ones, but the cups have to be pressed into or out of the frame. there are special tools for this, or you can improvise some if you're mechanically creative. To find tutorials it's the same as I said before but this time skip the Integrated
and simply search for "headset installation
" or "headset installation and adjustment".
BTW- not to push you off, but tutorials are easy to find if you just experiment until you find the right key words.
