Just as motoman says, you can turn this by hand once you loosen the locknut with a hammer/chisel/screwdriver. I've not yet had to to do anything but put it on a stand. No leather gloves or removing anything. It is a little trickier to tighten the preload versus loosen it. Too tighten, I stand/sit on the left side and press on the notches with a long screwdriver using my left hand, then grab and twist the spring with my right hand while putting pressure in the screwdriver too make sure that it turns. To loosen no need to use the screwdriver, just turn it with your hands!
