My Haynes book from '87-2000 says back out the adjustment screws(not locknuts) 2.5 for front band and 4 full turns on the rear.
Are these the numbers you used? I'm thinking Haynes is giving factory specs, but if these bands are worn, and we're taking up the slack by adjusting. Wouldn't we want to go a little tighter on the bands?
