    .. nut is meant to adjust the effect of creep on the alignment after a period of time

    Hello everybody!

    The test I am reading now is about INSTRUCTIONS FOR FITTING. The instructions are about conical mounting with height re-adjustment, type RD 214 / RD 215 / RD 244.

    The full sentence under discussion is as follow:

    The adjusting nut is meant to adjust the effect of creep on the alignment after a period of time.

    The way I understand the sentence is as follows:

    The duty/purpose of the aligning nut is to adjust the effect of creep on the alignment after a period of time.

    That is where the trouble starts for me. What does "the effect of creep on the alignment" mean?

    The effect of creep on the alignment =? the effect that/which creep has on the alignment =? the influence that/which creep exerts on the alignment. In other words, the alignment is influenced by creep.

    Thank you.

    I may be wrong.

    Yes. Creep will make changes to the alignment. Something that is perfectly aligned before will move out of alignment.
