DOES ANYONE HAVE ALIGNMENT DATA FOR MY 1965 220SEb CABRIOLET?

It's odd that the info is so hard to find. Can't locate it anywhere in all of my service literature. Please help before I steer into a semi or a phone pole.

Way to be completely off topic scoregrant....

Anyway, Hopefully this is what you need... I just scanned it from my 1959-67 manual.

(Sorry the only way I could attach full size is in a pdf, if the "700-something x 800" jpeg isn't big enough)

The alignment tech will check your front end for wear. Then you will know if it can be aligned. I took my 220SEb in and the front end is badly worn, so I'll be fixing it soon.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but there isn't too much in the front end of these just kingpins and tie rods right?

I'm mean they have shocks not struts and no ball joints, guess you'd have to find a alignment shop that even knows what a kingpin is vs a ball joint, none of the shops around me would have a clue... That and the only thing I know about aligning a car is the tie rod adjustments.

There's a lot, the lower trunions, the upper camber adjusters, the inner pivots and seals, the caster adjustment bushings and to add more, the rear bushings. Lets not forget the idler arm. So you see, there is much more than meets the eye.

*sigh*... that sounds like a lot of work, luckily mine only has 60,000 mi. on it and the alignment is still good...
