Need a barrel adjuster for Suntour ARX Derailleur

I either misplaced it or lost it while taking apart everything and cleaning. Does anyone have one or know where I can get one?

Can you show me what your talking about? I'm not familiar with an inline adjuster.

Really! So I really aren't crazy and still on top of my memory! I couldn't figure out what I would have done with the non-existent adjuster. So, how do you fine tune with the adjustment at the shifters?

Its friction, so you dont really. I like to try and put the tiniest bit of preload on the cable, because I hate having a loose cable in the high gear (numerically low cog) position.
