It’s years since I bought this Trakrite – must be in the 80s or 90s and so out it came again to check the tracking on the MGB prior to resetting the steering rack.
I wanted to check the tracking before putting some castor wedges in place so I could make sure it was the same afterwards.
It’s quite an easy bit of kit to use. You have to make sure the car is on flat level ground and simply drive the car over it. The needle shows a reading in degrees. In this case I was just wanting to make sure I got the same readings after doing the job as before doing the job.
