Yes, tightening the nuts will take up slack front to back as well.

The posi Loc may be stuck also so you may want to raise both wheels off the ground and once you get both nuts loose spin the wheels around and that will disengage the lock if it was stuck.
Keep us posted on what you find out :thumbs:

I will let you know thanks so much. I was just looking at the manual and noticed that there is only one castle nut p/n 1109653 and it is on the right(the one that is siezed)and with a cotter pin which is missing.

I'd do the castle nut first and see if that fixes your problem

Did you do both sides? The manual says left side must be done first, then do the right.
This won't get rid of all the backlash, but should improve it.

hmm that is wierd... I never seen them have that much play after the adjustment...

Can you get a better pic of the play?
I think you'll be ok if you leave it as is for now.

Yes, I will take one tomorrow with the wheel off. It's to dark now and 55 kilometer winds!!!!!!!! I guess I'd better bolt the shelter down. I just moved from the BIG city Ottawa the capitol of Canada to rural Smiths Falls Ontario, on just about an acre. So things are still up in the air rite now. hopefully not my shelter.
