Ok 2 questions here, track tension... what should the distance bewtween the track and the wearstrips be?

Second, how do you check it? The manual says to use 20 lbs of pressure, but the mechanic at the dealership said to free hang without any pressure and that it should be a distance between of 1/2-3/4".

so which way is the proper way, and what should the distacnce be?

Thanks guys!

If you set it that tight you will be wearing hyfax like crazy.

Use 1" at the middle of the rails on a warmed-up track and no additional pressure or weight.

That is conservative and you can actually go much looser, but use 1" to start with.

Make SURE you carefully align the track at the same time.
