Need some input, replaced everything that was worn, trying to adjust the draft control, turnbuckle is extended out as far as it can go and my gap is 498 thousands, book says 397 thousands. Any help of what I'm missing here thanks.

Forcing the washer in ahead of the spring will only compress the spring which will not help the situation

With the adjuster ran out that far the lift arms will not go all the way down.

Remove the big draft control spring and the three bolts and the peices behind it on the bolt to the liftchest, get a thin washer that will fit over the main draft control bolt, notch it for the spacer pin. Slid the washer on the shaft and everything as was removed. May not be according to the book, or professional, but it works as it takes up ware on the pin that is just ahead of your newly installed washer.. First thing will Probably be a torch to remove the yoke

If you run out of threads on the turnbuckle when properly adjusting the draft control linkage, replace the draft control fork.

Deformed draft control forks are a common cause of draft control malfunction.

Where did you get the draft control fork?

I've gotten incorrectly made forks before.

Yes, you can compensate for a bent fork with a washer as previously stated.

That's where I buy mine.

I've gotten bad draft control forks before but not from DC.

Also, in your picture the main handle appears to be about halfway between all of the way down and all of the way up.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Which lever are you calling the "draft control lever" and which are you calling the "position control lever"?

There is a small mode selector lever that switches between position control mode and draft control mode, and then there is the main quadrant handle. When the small level is down the main handle controls the draft and when the small lever is up the main handle controls the position. So neither one is exclusively the "draft control lever" or the "position control lever".

I was double checking when i took the picture, I had the draft control lever down and the position control lever to the top just like the IT manual shows.

Some purist I'm sure will disagree to no end with what I will tell you but most of us out here in the real world don't really care do we ?
