Digital Wheel Alignment
- The adjustment of various components to meet predetermined specifications for camber, caster, toe and ride height.
- Wheel alignment is part of standard automobile maintenance that consists of adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are set to the car maker's specification.
- Aligning a vehicle's wheels, by checking and, if necessary, resetting front and/or rear suspension and steering angles to the manufacturer's specifications. Uneven tire wear or steering that pulls can indicate a need to have the wheel alignment checked or adjusted.
- Involving or relating to the use of computer technology
- (of a clock or watch) Showing the time by means of displayed digits rather than hands or a pointer
- displaying numbers rather than scale positions; "digital clock"; "digital readout"
- relating to or performed with the fingers; "digital examination"
- of a circuit or device that represents magnitudes in digits; "digital computer"
- Relating to or using signals or information represented by discrete values (digits) of a physical quantity, such as voltage or magnetic polarization, to represent arithmetic numbers or approximations to numbers from a continuum or logical expressions and variables
digital wheel alignment - Park Tool
Park Tool TM-1 Spoke Tension Meter
The key to wheels that are strong and reliable is having spokes that are properly and uniformly tensioned. The TM-1 Tension Meter accurately and reliably measures the absolute tension of each of the spokes in a wheel, as well as the relative tension between all the spokes in a wheel. Easy to use and priced affordably, the TM-1 works on nearly any bicycle spoke?no matter what the diameter, material, or shape. Not just for the experienced mechanic, the TM-1 is for anyone building or truing wheels, diagnosing wheel problems, or assembling new bikes. It?s a tool that belongs on every workbench.
Maintenance (Mexican Mechanical Notes)
Not as bad as it looks, some pre-return maintenance on the Toyota; ball-joints, brake pads, some lube here and there. You gotta love the way the Mexicans just make things work. As fellow Skunk Jeff put it, "these guys can make a piston out of a beer-can". I'm glad things didn't come to that, but there was a fair amount of rigging going on. The good news was that the 4X4 transfer-case problem was not a problem at all, simply a matter of the location of the front drive-shaft being poorly position when the t-case was engaged. As an additional note, since I posted this image and picked the truck up, I needed an alignment. I'm used to my usual mechanics state-of-the-art Snap-On high tech alignment equipment, with laser attachments and digital read-out complete with miniature "your car here" imagery. The shop I went to had what seemed to be 15-year old equipment that had been rendered useless because the attachments that usually go on the front wheels were inoperable, basically the "alignment" was done by moving the steering wheel right-to-left, and repeatedly checking the front tires with a wooden rod. Crude but (maybe) effective, and considering the conditions of the roads, with potholes and "topes" (Mexican speed-bumps), even the best alignment might be worth a few weeks.
The castor angle was measured using a digital inclinometer mounted to the brake disc. First of all you turn the wheel to +20 degrees and zero the gauge. You then turn the wheel to -20 degrees (ie giving a total of 40 degrees total movement) and the readout on the inclinometer gives the castor angle.

This econometric study covers the latent demand outlook for automotive wheel alignment equipment excluding hand tools across the regions of Greater China, including provinces, autonomous regions (Guangxi, Nei Mongol, Ningxia, Xinjiang, Xizang - Tibet), municipalities (Beijing, Chongqing, Shanghai, and Tianjin), special administrative regions (Hong Kong and Macau), and Taiwan (all hereafter referred to as "regions"). Latent demand (in millions of U.S. dollars), or potential industry earnings (P.I.E.) estimates are given across some 1,100 cities in Greater China. For each major city in question, the percent share the city is of the region and of Greater China is reported. Each major city is defined as an area of "economic population", as opposed to the demographic population within a legal geographic boundary. For many cities, the economic population is much larger that the population within the city limits; this is especially true for the cities of the Western regions. For the coastal regions, cities which are close to other major cities or which represent, by themselves, a high percent of the regional population, actual city-level population is closer to the economic population (e.g. in Beijing). Based on this "economic" definition of population, comparative benchmarks allow the reader to quickly gauge a city's marketing and distribution value vis-a-vis others. This report does not discuss the specific players in the market serving the latent demand, nor specific details at the product level. The study also does not consider short-term cyclicalities that might affect realized sales. The study, therefore, is strategic in nature, taking an aggregate and long-run view, irrespective of the players or products involved.
