Re: Chain slack adjuster taking power?
I did the same thing on my bike Bill not because it wasn't tightening up but because I didn't know when to stop. I realized too late what I had done and almost had a heart attack because it was on my 67 Sears all chrome Fleetwood.
Its still that way now but I have to take the rear tire off and replace some spokes. I'll try and realign it all back up again. (little more experienced now) If there is still tight spots in the chain I'll try what you have. Thanks for the photo Bill.
