How tight should do you suppose the fork pinch bolts on my T120 need to be.

I'm using the fork puller tool to get the tube up a good distance with the expectation that the cap nut will finish off the rest, but no matter how much I tighten the bolts, the tube slides right back out.

Also, have any of you had a what I think might be a bad threaded adapter? I believe the one I'm supposed to use is a 1 1/16 x 20 but I am only able to thread it about 3 turns.

A very common problem that is easily rectified. The slots in the lower triple tree are too short due to the way they are machined. All you have to do is run a hacksaw in the slot until the top and bottom are equal length and maybe more if needed.
