Splitfire First generation

i have a first generation splitfire rear on an orion baseplate. i was wondering what this peice does.

(this isnt my truck, but it has the same thing)

does it just keep the peice that goes into the pivot cup in the hanger?

jam nut

that is a jam nut...adjust the pivot to the proper depth, then crank that nut down and it locks down the pivot

If you have your's run out prety far.(as the one shown) make sure that lock nut is snugged up good! I learned the hard way in 2002 on a TTC that they can, and will "pop" out!! Ground a bit of nose off(luckily the deck and not mine) Although it was a Turner, not one of my older ones atleast.
ENJOY!! (while you can)
