OK. I have made a lot of calls, learned a lot on axle

OK. Last But not least.
Start Angle Degree.
My current arm measures 10 degrees up, but it's toast. I have found other threads reporting this angle on a dead axle
If I go with 10 degrees down (and I believe that was what scamp
used back in 1977), that would give me 2" of lift from my current state. The axle is 8" off the ground now. If I go with 22.5 deg down, I gain 3.5" or so.
I have seen some pictures of 22.5 degrees and it looks high!
Although I'm low now. 3.5" doesn't seem like a lot.
Am I over thinking the extra inch?
