Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear of the issue you're having with the tractor. I know how frustrating that is.

This indicates a safety switch failure, but could also be caused by dirty contacts. It could be an issue with the seat switch, clutch/brake switch, or the PTO switch. You will want to make sure the contacts are clean, and test them for continuity to see which is at fault. I have provided a video below that will show how to properly test them.

Q:

can I adjust my front wheels so that they will both true and straight. the right wheel is facing out to the right more that it is straight and the left is true. 917280350 Craftsman Tractor

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear of the toe-out issue you're having with the tractor after hitting the pole. I know how concerning that is to have happen.

This model of tractor does not feature front wheel toe-in and toe-out adjustments. I suspect that either the right hand drag link or the front right spindle bent slightly after the collision. You will need to inspect the components to see where the damge is and replace whichever was affected. 

For convenience, I have linked the parts list below for this tractor so that you can see the components involved with the steering.
