Torquay Speedway, Victoria, early 1970's:
Going by the Supermods in the background it looks like about 67 68 making that HD or HR a late model car then.
Check out the r/f camber on some of those cars, especially the EH No 11. The HD is toeing out more than a bit too.
Bend the kingpin support by heating and bouncing! Seen it done a few times. And lengthen the pitman arm [and sometimes idler] about 2" to quicken the steering up.
Lowering the back was sometimes achieved by heating the back of the spring behind the 2nd leaf and bouncing. Sometimes that happened in the front too, just sag a coil or two.
Life was simple and the gas supply companys had not priced half the racers out of having an oxy set with stupid bottle rental charges.
