Smile Alignment done.

Busy weekend so far....

Two can of diesel purge on friday cleared up 90% of the nailing and rattling. There is still a knock at startup and some occasional engine chattering going up hills but for the most part she is running great. Not good enough in my opinion so I think i'll pick up a set of the bosio nozzles and see if that helps.

New filters all around to promote well being.

(FYI- Inter Auto in San Diego has 1 French nozzle in their stock of Indian ones.)

Next was to replace the bent tie rod and get the alignment done. Shop down the street from my house uses a Hunter (?)DP500 and was familiar with the spreader bar used on my car. $70 in total and they set the camber and caster while they were at it. Have a look at the sheet and let me know if you see anything screwy please.

Drives great now, no more twitchyness on sweeping left handers. Very neutral around town, though she still pulls a little left sometimes but not all the time. Tires following the road I'm guessing.

Easeing on down the Road,
