I put a casing screw into the end of the shaft and used this to pull and push the shaft to test the end float. Usually you would have to tap the outer bush inwards to take up any float. I was fortunate that with the case screws tightened and the card in place there was just discernable end float with no binding.
I am happy with set up so the loctite can be left to set. A bit of time at this point to file the breather/bush profile to match would be beneficial but any swarf has to cleaned thoroughly away.
