Can you adjust a clevis only tie rod assembly?

Yes, clevises do have a take up that rods can be screwed into to tighten the assembly. This is typically not as large an adjustment as a turnbuckle but can be several inches depending on the size of the clevis and the pin as you can see in the picture. You can also extend the assembly by about an inch but be careful to keep the entire neck of the clevis engaged with threads or risk the integrity of the assembly.
