Abstract:

To provide graphic indication to an operator to operate the arrangement by determining the difference between the measured wheel arrangement condition and the specification of the wheel arrangement condition, and selecting the graphic equivalent to the difference.

An angle measuring head 12 is fitted to a wheel of a truck using an appropriate wheel clamp 14. A shaft 16 and a shaft 16 to which the clamp 14 is connected are arranged on the same line as a rotary shaft 18 of the wheel. A scale 26 is provided on a frame gage 24, and a reference marker 28 is provided thereon. The angle measuring head 12 measures the angle between the rotary shaft of the wheel and the line 32 extending to the reference marker 28. The data from the head 12 are transmitted to a console 20, a computer 52 compares the measured arrangement condition with that in the specification to select one prescribed graphic equivalent to the difference. Then, the graphic is indicated on a monitor 54.
