Raising Spinner on tailgate spreader

    Hey guys,

    I have a western 2500 tailgate spreader and I want to know if there is an adjustment to move the spinner up on the shaft closer to the hopper. The problem that I am having is when filling the spreader they salt will run out the bottom instead of building up on the spinner and stoping. I believe this is because the spinner is to far away from the bottom of the hopper. I figured there may be some kind of adjustment for this with a set screw or something. I can't bring it in the shop until tomorrow but figured I would ask here first.
