I do not understand what you mean by "cross shaft" and steering shaft" but if you refer to fitting the drop arm to the drop arm shaft, then the following link will help you https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/ ... UJUbVlIXzA

If the procedure you are asking about is what ollek is referring to I centering the steering box by putting it on full lock one way then count the rotations to being full lock on the opposite way. then halve the number of turns and that centers the steering box.
With the wheels facing forward I measure from the back edge of the front rim to the chassis on each side until they are equal. Then adjust your arm that come from the drop arm to the front axle so that it drops into position.

The link I sent earlier is a link to a complete workshop manual and all adjustments can be found in the manual. Just click on the second part of the manual and scroll down until you get to the steering section.
