52 willys pulling to the left

So I am a sophomore in high school and I own a 1952 Willys. Today I rotated the tires and when I got in to drive it it had a bad pull to the left. I noticed it immediately. It had a slight pull before but nothing like this. I have pictures of the patterns it made on the tires I just can't figure out how to post them.

Check your tire pressure first, especially if it changed with rotating the tires.

Sounds like tire pull to me. You should still completely shake down the front end on that old rig.

Once you figure out how to post pics, I want to see some of that rig. That was the first vehicle I ever helped dad rebuild, oh the memories.

swap your front tires side to side, if it pulls to the right it is a radial pull.

How did you swap them and are they radials?

If radials they should have been swapped front to rear and no criss cross.
