Adjusting Limited Slip

Recommended Posts


Ok fellas. I'm sure this is a silly question. But I just got my 2210 going last weekend which is my first fdt and realized that the rear axle is locked solid. This is a cool notion but I'd like the differential to be working/functional. How do I go about adjusting it?

One hub (right side?) has 2 extra lug bolts or 2 allen screws going into the hub at an angle in the center of the wheel. Probably set too tight, proper torque is 25 foot pounds I think.

Spot on Dan. That is the factory torque setting. Here is the section on the Differential...


This was taken from the "Combined Ops & IPL manual" available at...http://www.simplicitymfg.com/us/en/support/manualswhich covers at least 14 models of Landlords! get it while it is still available!Good Luck,wayne

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
