Going over the route 66 I picked up recently, I figured a stopper was missing on the driving shaft, thanks to this ebay listing.
Good thing my favorite game moving helper is a machinist in real life! Not only did he remove the screws that were broken on the shaft (from the previous stopper), but he fabricated a new one, again thanks to the pictures on the listing.

Pretty happy with it!


and man, no wonder the game so heavy:

Now if I could figure out where to get these compression springs from the steering rack for cheap, I would be golden.
