Ok this is my problem... I have noticed that rear wheel is set back, almost like the swing arm is longer. If u have a suggestion of how to fix it or what the problem might be.. i am willing to try any thing.

thanks

Sorry about forgeting to mention the year.. It is a 1967 with 1966 fenders. If that helps at all.

Hmm, sounds like someone removed the transaxle without marking the spindle/trailing arm position. measure the length of the arm on the side that looks right then compare it to the side that looks wrong. my bet is the wrong side is slid too far back. loosen the three bolts up and hammer the sucker in a bit till its the same as the other side. then check your toe. Should be 0 on the rear.
