The loose screw may have been your problem. You should use some 
loctite on the threads when you put it back together. There's not 
much thread engagement there, so the loctite is important. The AAR 
body is also rather soft metal, so it's easy to strip the threads if 
you tighten too much.

You may be able to see some scratches on there that show where the 
setting used to be, otherwise send it back to me to be reset 
correctly. You should have put it back to where it was in your 
earlier photo, assuming that's how it was when you got it from me.

Yes, I believe there's supposed to be a wavy washer under the screw
