Best regards,
Hi Werner, good question. I believe that what would happen is that my stroke length on my good side would become shorter, that is, the same length as on my bad side. All of these things are coupled together. One might argue that having an asymmetric stroke length should also produce alignment issues. In some sense, I believe I can compensate for that by varying my rotation on each side as well. My belief at this point is that, if I concentrate on maintaining head position at alignment, the rest will take care of itself, but this is all work in progress.
