dude. the linkage is adjustable. also there is a plastic bushing that goes bad quite frequently. it gets brittle and falls apart. if you don't know what to look for, you might even miss it.

where u arrow bushing, i have a metal roller, but was told that the part it sits inside think (#117) has a plastic gromet inside to fill the gap. and the gromet does not get sold seperate from the piece List $17.00. thus that is the piece i ordered. your adjustment looks different from mine. What about the lag u think linkage ??
