    If you search on the BB there is reference to your question.
    If I remember correctly others have told me 1 1/2 turns will get you close. I replaced the latch spring on mine and that adjustment was really close.
    Should add that was with the screws flush with the housing then count your turns

    Default Initial Latch Adjustment Screw Position

    Hi Team,
    from observation over the years a good starting point would be around 1/2 a turn of the screw head in below flush of the latch end and start from there.
    Scan below may help with the adjustment.

    Yep that's right, that setting is a bit on the light side and usually needs another 1/2 to 1-1/2 turns in to end up where it needs to be (every machine is different) but I like to sneak up on it knowing that the first start isn't going to ventilate the pony motor because the latches were too tight.
