yeah, theres just enough play in there to give you a little adjustment.

Basically, the factory tried to make them so they were just a bolt on deal, but, as they age, every little bit counts.

With mine, I can get nearly .10 of a change in voltage just by moving it a little each way, just try and get it to the number closest to 1.00 volt and tighten her down.

I considered trying to knock the metal keepers out, but, I'll try it before I recommend anyone doing it.
