Also check the setscrew between the spindles in the casting. The key for that is straight cut and can get sloppy over time.

Check the bearing at the bottom of the spindle. Turns slow, but after 60 years of hammering on rough ground, it scallops out and allows for free play. Worse on hard surface roads.

Yup, it was the bottom bearing in the steering column or post.
