Had to look at you restoration pics to see which style wheel you had, early 65-68 style with the adjusting nuts.

There are two stops that bolt to one of the rails, there are large clamping nuts and holders bolted on the wheels center that adjust and puts a clamping force on each rail.

You'll need to loosen each nut the same amount, move one of the stops to where you want the wheel positioned, spin the wheel in or out to the position you want and move the other stop next to the wheel. The stops prevent the wheel from spinning in or out should the clamping nuts get loose.

Thighen the clamping nuts equally and turn the wheel to make sure it doesn't wobble and isn't out of round. Sometimes you have to loosen the nuts on the high side and tighten the ones on the low side to get the wheel centered.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: Electronic Ignition - by Staff. Oil, for example has come a long way in the last 50 years and I don't use anything but the latest API grade available. I've heard the arguments for non-detergent oils but would never trade it for today's formulations. Paint is another, the modern acrylic enamels are great for resistance to grease and fuel stains, retaining their shine and they last forever; unlike enamels and lacquers . Still another is the alternator. No doubt using the original generator keeps the tractor pure, but for thos ... [Read Article]
