After bringing the spacing in the alignment / tracking is off. Does anyone know if adjustment can be made at the spindle? I'll wear these front tire out quickly if I don't adjust. Thanks!

Are the bushings in the knees still good around, are the front spindles loose in the knees, Sounds like you may have worn bushings, and or worn spindles in the knees where the bushings run on the spindles.

Yes you have to adjust the tie rods to match the axle spacing. Some have notch's and a set screw others have just a clamp. Not familiar with your tractor. Adjust the rods until your tires are straight and inline with the center of rear tires.

After looking at book it shows your's has the set screw and notches to adjust.Loosen screw and adjust to a certain notch to be in line. They may be hard to adjust out if it hasn't been moved in some time. May have to drive it out.

Thanks. I adjusted the front axle as well as the tie rods, but its stjll off a little - maybe 3/4 per side at center of tread, translates to very small movement at the tie rod. I was hoping there would be a fine adjustment at the spindle but I have yet to see, read, or figure that out yet.
