Duly noted Walt. Fortunately, my (2013) T.K. has three distinct positions as far as setting the rear axle vertically (as opposed to slots on some of my previous karts), so that makes it a little easier to set the axle and rear ride height. As far as getting the axle square with the chassis, I’ve always measured equally from the outside bearing carrier to the adjacent end of the axle. I usually also measure from each end of the axle to the front wheel hub on the same side, but my understanding is that primarily squares up the front end prior to alignment. If there’s something I’ve missed, or if you have any suggestions toward reinstalling the axle better, I’d appreciate any feedback. Always something more to learn!
