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?

Re: Off topic vehy

The check will clear initially. After they get the car it will be discovered it was a fake and the bank will take their money back. The car will be long gone out of the country.
