Re: Excessive right front tire wear?

What Jim said.
My toe-in was 7/16”. I noticed it because the center two ribs on both tires had a sharp edge of rubber on the inside of the rib where they had been scrubbing. The wear was even on...

Re: New reproduction rear hub and drum

Two of my hubs had the studs welded in when I had Randy provide new cast iron drums.
He provided original serviceable hubs on those two drums.

Re: Toein

Thanks Bob. I missed that change.

Mine steers great but have noticed ridges forming on the inside of the ribs. Found the toe-in to be 7/16”.

Re: Toein

Les Andrews book says the toe-in should be 1/16 +-1/32. The Model A Ford Service Bulletins on page 239 says 3/16” to 1/4”
Which is it?
