Wayne - you certainly ask a good question "What is the reason for the Foam Washer (spacer)" at the top of the steering column. I'm certainly interested in any answers out there from the engineering type. In my view it just fills the space between the bottom of the steering wheel and the top of the IH plastic bearing (or aftermarket steal bearing). I guess the foam "keeps the dust out", but probably helps absorb moisture to hasten rusting of the splined column to the steering wheel splines. Course I guess IH had to fill the space with something.
