I understand tightening the right adjuster to force the left bearing up against its race. Then the manual says to tighten the right adjuster "snugly" against the bearing, then tighten it an additional notch or two to "preload" the bearings.
One or two notches past "snug" seems pretty tight to me. Maybe I need help to understand the concept of preloading the the carrier bearings, which bathe in gear oil, as opposed to front wheel bearings (only 33 ft/lb if I recall??), which doesn't seem as tight as preloaded carrier bearings would be.
Or just follow the manual to the letter no matter how tight it seems?
