Rear Wheels, Moving Them Out?

First off let me say I have the manuals on order and won't get them for about three weeks. What I want to do is move the rear wheels out. Is there any special procedure for doing this other than jacking the tractor and loosening the lugs? Any safety concerns? Thanks!

Mike, I assume your're speaking of the WD-45 since your prior post referred to that model. Remove one of the rail stops and reset in a hole at the point you want your wheel tread set. Turn all 4 cams (eccentrics) counterclockwise as far as they will go. Get on tractor, shift into 1st or Reverse depending on whether you want to move the wheels in or out (I always have to try 'til I get it right), lock the brake on the opposite wheel and let out the clutch. The wheel will spin (in or out) until it hits the stop. Replace the removed stop and turn all 4 cams clockwise as far as they will go. Repeat for the opposite wheel. You may have to "jerk" the clutch to get the wheel to start. This process works best on sandy or loose soil but it might also work good on icy surfaces.The toughest part may be getting the cams loose if the wheels haven't been adjusted for years or they have been exposed to NaCl solution. If so, try PB Blaster and give the the head of the cam bolt a sharp rap with a heavy hammer. Good luck!! It's real easy as long as you keep the cams from "freezing" up.
