A quick question for the group. I'm in the middle of installing a Campy Record threadless headset
and I think I've got it right.

But obviously I haven't or I wouldn't be posting this question :)

I have just put the upper ball bearings in, (balls up), the plastic retainer, the upper cone with
the seal and the top cover. But I have a small gap between the upper head cup and the top cover. I
can't seem to figure out how to get this gap to go away.

What have I done wrong?

For what it's worth, the bike is yellow and white <grin>

TIA!

The top bearings are smaller than the bottom ones. You may have reversed them. It is also possible
to invert the retainer, which would also give that symptom.
