Nope, I didn't take the ball ends off the rods... One ball end just did not have the locknut tight. Futzing around, getting it to seat, it turned quite a bit. Started it up and 2000 RPM. I looked closely at the nut/ball relationship looking for witness marks. It really wasn't clear.

So, if this is like all my diesels, there is a measurement distance on this piece of linkage. And if I set it back ... everything should be fine.

Cruz is much better, but still it engages not perfectly smooth.
