Anyone with an adams arm or know about them

I bought my bike and it already had an adams arm on it which was a plus. the owner said that it was as far back as it would go. I think he said a 6-10 over but its only sitting at a little under 63" but im almost positive it can go back another inch and a half or so. but i dont have my bike with me to mess around with it. by looking at the picture i dont know how it WOULDNT be able to go back more. or am i wrong?

If you've got the chain length you can take it all the way back in the adjuster. You've got another inch or so to go there. My gen3 at +14" is about 69".

Oh yeah you can go back to the edge of the hole. Actually the way it set up down isn't right, the block should be back farther filling in the hole and the axle should be in the middle hole. leaving an open spot like that causes a weak spot.
