The adjusters should go in just far enough so they can hold a little tension on the motor (if u keep turning u r spreading the frame apart)
Leaving the nut loose would cause trouble.
Looking at the pics the adjuster is in to far u need to back both of them off and start over.
This is only what i would do if i did not have the torque wrench.
I would turn it in till it seats then turn in 1/4 to 1/2 turn.
On mine the estimated space between the casel nut and the bolt that goes thru the frame is .200 to .250 (do not have my calipers at home.

Thanks so much man. I definetly didnt feel as if this was how it was sposed to feel and be tourquing down!.
Im just gonna go out soon here and get a descent tourgue wrench that reads nm and can perform at lower required tourques..haha im already this far in! Mine as well do it right!
So if i understand right you are supposed to only turn the hex head threaded adjuster first before having to circle around for fiddling with the castle nut correct?
