Question re Nuts on Titan Heim Joint

Recommended Posts

Big Clyde

I just had a new Titan III installed and have a question relating to the Heim joints. On three of the tower legs, the nut on the threaded bolt that comes out of the Heim joint and threads into the tower leg is backed down against the joint, whereas it is tight up against the leg on the fourth leg. How should these be adjusted? It seems to me that they should all be tight up against the tower leg (otherwise, what's the function of the nut)?

The nut should be locked tight against the tower, to eliminate any slop/slack in the threads.

Thanks. I thought so.

When you lock the heim joint in place, make sure it's centered on it's rotation. Not that they move much, but why induce any bind by having them turned up against the mounts.
