got new ones he thought were loctited, but no - that just means they siezed up
in the climate controlled indoors sitting on a shelf. The thread tolerances are
extremely tight because it's an extra fine thread, plus the affects of aluminum
to steel electrolysis, plus weather.
I've gotten badly siezed ones apart after soaking in trans fluid for months/years.
Then I made them serviceable by replacing original adjuster stud thing with a bolt
of the same threading, with the end modified to have similar flats on it. This reduces
adjustment range, but the 17 or 19 mm bolt head makes the thing adjustable with
normal socket tools. I don't recall the threading spec exactly - it was an extra fine
M12 and wasn't that hard to find.
