Other than that, this looks like a setup system that Mr. Hudy would be proud of.
wait so the holes on the side is to measure the chamber? my dad couldn't figure out what the dials were

The holes on the side should be just large enough for the axels of the car to fit through. The triangle pieces should be able to move from side to side, this is what measures the camber.

Yes, your dad did it correctly. Camber is measured off the Y-axis i.e. Vertically with a few degrees left or right (positive or negative)

Not a problem, Matt. Use a "Single Point" tool. Looks like a piece of drill rod, sharpened to a point. One half of the point is ground away to produce a cutting edge. Thats a excellent tool for making the lines you mentioned! Go to a machinist tool supply place and tell them what you want to do and they'll hook you up to what you need. If you've got a mill, you in the house, dog!

how do you get a camber reading? It seems that the peice that would tell you what the camber is is always at 0degrees (because its straight up and down)
take off the bottom screw and then the triangle moves

Thanks for the tip graphitedust! I will pick one up. Since I already have a Hudy set-up system, getting the dimensions will be easy. I found a place that sells plexiglass. Time to fire up the little Sherline and let the plastic chips fly

Thanks again
Matt
