Caster Question

Have 10 degree spindles and L blocks. Set on 0 now both sides.

My L blocks are not numbered on the top.

Random question:

If I wanted to put 2 more degrees of caster in the RF I rotate the top of the L block away from the driver? (towards the front?)

Sorry for a basic question but I went down an internet rabbit hole last night and think I confused myself even more.

It isn't really -0- its what ever the manufacturer found that chassis design responded to, ie 8LS 10RS or others.
Each notch on the L block represents 2 degrees.
 
Some are 3* between the notches.
A simple inclinometer can tell you what angle your L blocks are set stock at, and also the difference between the lines.
Set the motor rails level (0*), then measure your L blocks.
