I know it seems like a big deal but it's really not. You'll be a happier man to pull the lift assembly off and adjust. That will remove the clockwise question because you won't put it back together without knowing that the objective has been accomplished. You may also find, as I did once, a broken or damaged fork - or other things to tend to while you're in there.

Thanks fellas. I think you are right about taking whole hydraulic unit off. The more I look at it, I'm not sure what kind of skinny wrench I could get on that plug anyway. I was looking at it today and already figuring a way to get tractor under a hoist so I wouldn't have the heave that thing off by hand. I've had one of those tel-o-flow units off one of my other molines (4 Star) and they ain't light. Thanks again for your input.

I agree with Curt. When I got into my M5, like Im sure most are, the set screw was loose which allows too much shaft end play. I wouldnt have found it without taking the lift off. If yours is an earlier M5 (hydraulic pump with one line coming out of it) I believe there is a connecting pipe from the tel-o-flo to rear end you have to keep an eye on when removing.
