  5. Ok guys I’ve been doing the string method for years! Put a thumb tack in rear tires with string tied to itcenter of tread and center of rim, pull string tight to front tires just tuch rear sidewall of front tire and measure front front sidewall of tire to string do the same thing on other side adjust till both sides have an 1/8 tow-in on both sides works in air or on ground. It also let’s you know if the back axle is in straight also just look down string line

    I have a b1-FA looks same the rear end makes it an A after the F. F is a 14500 lbs it doesn’t have wing windows but a chrome gril so that’s next letter the cab has a # left fire wall engine bay up high cowling. Ps. These trucks can have four different rear ends and ratios that should help when in parts book the rear axle shaft has number on out side where it bolts to hub.
