The nut on the rack

The big nut is a lock nut for the allen bolt in the middle. It's the allen bolt that adjusts the preload on the rack. If you can't find a bit enough spanner for the large nut, Halford sell a Ford Viscous Fan spanner which is exactly the right size. Sykes Pickavent (sp?).


Adjust with front wheels in the air. That way you can tell when you've tightened it up enough to reduce slack to the minimum without introducing any binding.


Adjustment between slack and binding is very small.
