Why back off adjuster screw AFTER torquing it down?

Hi all! About to adjust the bands on my 46RH and it just doesn't make sense to back off the adjusting screw after you torque it down. Why not torque it down and leave it?

Thanks for helping my understand my transmission better!

When the servo applies the band, you want it to tighten without slipping, but when it releases, you do not want it to drag. So the proper torque is what allows it to stop the drum from turning, but backing off allows the drum to turn without rubbing/dragging on the band.

The bands have 2 functions to allow gear shifting; apply and release.

You're setting the release position, not the apply position.

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.
