Front Fork Locknut adjustment

I tried to move the nut by hand, then with a wrench, but it would not budge. Can anyone shed some light on the distance specification?

You are right about the clicks in, I'm at 16 click just to get a softer ride from the forks. I found it funny that the locknuts were both at 17mm, when the manual insists on a 20mm minimum. So you also suggest to ensure the top cap has the same amount of thread distance on each side to ensure it goes all the way. Did the Locknut move easily after you tightened the two nuts together?

Then read this post since I was scratching my head about what to do about the lock nut..
I tightened the cap down finger tight before tightening the lock nut, but also am not sure if it was just binding on the threads or something else.
Should I back out the adjuster screw before installing the cap, since I changed springs?
I think I will pull it apart again tomorrow to double check my "work"...

Will dig back into this tomorrow.
