Steering shaft off center to steering column

When replacing the turn signal wiring in my 289 65 auto floor shift I ended up having to take the head off of the column. With the column head and bearing removed you could see that the steering shaft was angled towards the bottom face of the column. Putting the column head back on required some force to center it over the column since the shaft needed to be deflected towards center.
Previously I hadn't noticed any problems with the steering. Is this normal? If not what could cause the shaft to be off center at the top like that and what should I do to fix it?

Hello.:) :welcome There is a little tapered sleeve that slips down over the steering shaft to center it up. It's what that little spring is sitting on that's underneath the steering column. :)
