    I think so, but at my age I'm not sure of anything anymore. :-( I Photoshop-swapped the 1-2 caps in this pic and it looks less crazy to me, but then I don't know what it's supposed to look like in...

    I had a completely loose track bolt. I assume that's the cause. I haven't driven it--I saw it while underneath digging into the engine due to a knocking rod, ugh. About to pull the bottom case...

    Pulls left on normal acceleration

    Like the title says. It pulls hard enough that you have to correct it to stay in your lane. Let off the gas and it pulls back to the right (since you've been holding the wheel "right" to keep it...
