Hey Ben
I seen a pic of classic 3 axle on d80. I believe the tradition and legend axle would fit. I put legend 2 front axle on tradition I just need to switch out wheels.
I was wondering rdoes axle held d80 adjust to all settings or reason behind it.

Yes, I did that as a temporary fix when I noticed the height settings of the original axle were too low for my carpets. I did that inspired by the Super-Sweep and Super-Vac.

(a video I made of my '69 D80 back in 2014; with the Classic III axle)

I see what you mean about the height adjustment. I have extended screws and wide wheels but I have micro matic and tradition axle. It may take a little bit but it makes a difference. The super sweeper I have needs a micro matic or just a screw in lowest notch. It even with 18 inch brush roll gets deep suction like tradition and legend.
Thanks for the video.
One quick question. My royal 249 does not have ajust o rite cap. I know it's red and black. The top right to bottom left is where colors are split and it has the royal lettering and the crown. I read humans royal history. I noticed you added details too. Im wondering if you have seen one for sale. I have looked but I'm not finding the correct cap. I have the fan brush roll led light I need to wire and reassemble. I got got advice from hygiene via email on wiring. I took pics of wiring. They adoninized the body. The carbon brushes look adoninized too. So the springs were off and even with carbon brush caps off I had to disassemble vacuum to get carbon brushes out. This also loosened the carbon brush caps basically impossible to see how wiring should be.
I got a handle too. So I just need to reassemble. I can use another royal cap in mean Time but to finish complete restore of vacuum that would finish it.
