Thanks GTO Guy. Coming from your real world experience, the advice is credible

Old school alignment shops that know what to do with older cars seem to be going the way of the dinosaurs.

The May issue of Car Craft Magazine that's just out has a hands-on feature article showing how to use the Tenhulzen Automotive wheel alignment tools available from Summit Racing.

Front wheel alignment only, though.

To the owner of the '64, formerly of Duxbury, Ma., sorry, lost your 'e' mail.

The values I took to the alignment shop were for radial tires, manual steer, and were garnered from the Forum.

Best of Luck

Jack64, that was me. No problem. As I mentioned in my PM to you, I am in the same situation you are and am looking for advice. I just put new radials on my '64 and am looking for accurate alignment settings for my car with Power Steering. I will be having them aligned soon an would appreciate some guidance that I can take into the shop doing the work. Thanks.

Touring settings, radial tires:

Front camber, zero
Caster +1.5 to 2.5 deg. (higher setting preferred with PS, but may not be attainable)
Front toe, 1/32" per wheel, toe in (0.13 deg.)

Rear camber, -0.5 deg.
Rear toe , 1/32" per wheel, toe-in (0.13 deg.)

Sport settings, radial tires:

As above, but with up to -1.0 degree camber, all four wheels and install urethane front anti-roll bar link bushings.

All cross readings should be as close to zero as possible.

For bias ply tires, set toe at 1/16" toe-in per wheel, all four wheels (0.26 deg.)
