Default How do I adjust a White Industries Bottom Bracket?

The White Industries BB that came in my 1990 Yo Eddy has a small amount of play. Does anyone know how to adjust this bottom bracket?

Thanks,
Jon

I am guessing you don't. They probably used radial contact bearings that aren't really adjustable, and similar to old Bullseye BBs and hubs may have too much initial clearance. If you try to put any more preload on them the will just bind up.
