Nearly all of it. You've got to breathe the stuff to get it right.

Here's some documentation from a tractor manual. There are several
glaring errors. Find them.

Inspection and Repair

Inspect knee bushings (E) for wear and scoring. Bushing I.D. should be
1.1811 to 1.1824 inch (30.0 to 30.03 mm).

Inspect spindle shaft for wear and scoring. Shaft O.D. should be 1.1795
to 1.1803 inch (29.96 to 29.98 mm).

NOTE: the shaft-to-bushing clearance should be 0.001 to 0.003 inch (0.03
to 0.08 mm) but no more than 0.10 inch (0.25 mm).

Inspect thrush bearing (D, Fig. 8.), seat (C) and O-ring (I) for wear.
Replace if necessary.

12. Check that each lever moves to the retract position and returns
freely to its neutral position when released.

If bushings must be replaced, drive old bushings out with a long draft.

Drive new bushings into flush with end of tube using 27504 Disk and
Driver (Fig. 9). Measure new bushings after installation. If necessary,
hone new bushings to the New Part specification (see Group 00).

IMPORTANT: Since the shaft and spindle is an integrated unit, it should
be carefully inspected for cracks. If there is any question about the
condition of the unit, it should be inspected by Magnaflux or a similar
crack-detection process.
