« on: December 19, 2017, 07:39:31 AM »
any difference in setting pinion on a double cardan adams..?  1 degree below pinion sound good?... so under load it should rotate to zero...in theory anyways.

Sounds reasonable. With leaf springs, I always set it 1-2" below, with links it won't move much if at all.

Yes, 1 degree down should do the trick. :mrgreen:
