On my 15 yr old 2210, the 3 point hitch adjustable link is stuck and I can’t adjust it because the lock nut is screwed too tight. I can’t move it or the adjustable cylinder. I can’t remember which way to turn each. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

The nut turns left, if standing on the right side of the link. ;)
Also, look at the threads. If they rise, loosen in that direction.

Look at the threads. Turn it in the direction the threads go up.

If I remember correctly the top half is right hand thread, so lefty loosey.

It might be easier to remove the link and put it in a vise.

Threads probably corroded together like all get-out. Get some PB Blaster, spray on the threads, let it soak in for a while, spray again, soak, and then go at it with the wrenches.

I carry a pair a pair of vise grips in the tool box just for that problem, along with a long shaft screwdriver just for that problem.
Always us the proper tools to make adjustments.. 😄

I carry a pair of crescent wrenches on the rig. They don’t fit in the tool box so they have been standing up in the storage next to the seat for years. Eventually I will replace stock tool box with a larger one. To answer the question, nut loosens like a regular nut from top of coupler. Once loose, turning the coupler will expand or lessen the overall length. If its tight, wrench it snug make sure your turning off coupler the right way. You could take it off to vice it but more than likely, thats unnecessar.

Unless it's a left hand thread.
