Here are photos showing the thrust tube installation. It is an easy installation. The template is included down below in a PDF file. The template shows a centering ring. Lately I have been using a strip of foam instead of making a ring. I cut a 10" piece of 3mm EPP foam about 1/8" wide. The photos show how it is installed, this strip method is quite easy to do and is my preferred method when the gap is only about 1/8" wide. Once installed you see how well it makes the thrust tube stay circular.

Centering strip installed. Wick a little CA to hold it in place.
Add some tape to hold thrust tube to the fan unit.
Use an Xacto and remove the foam bump on the EDF cover, it wants to hit the thrust tube.
