Caster and Engine Stuff.

First off. How do I measure my front caster angle. I lifted up my jeep and it wants to wander around. I'm guessing its a combination of the pitman arm and lift thats causing this. If I can get the caster back to where it was while keeping the driveshaft at the propper angle it might help. Any ideas how I find out the amount of caster I have... measure the knuckle with an angle finder? Also what "should" my caster be set at?

My 258 is tired and I'd like to rebuild her. I've heard word that they've got a master rebuild kit that has all the seals, bearings, and gaskets that I'd need. I looked at a few places online with little luck. I'm looking for a whole kit - short block and head if possible. Going EFI would be great but I might have to pull a newer 258's manifold for that.
