Q:

Front wheels toed outward 917288740 Craftsman Tractor

A:

Update to previous post.: Prior to reassembling the front wheels and drag links I looked around for reasons of why the front wheels were toed outward. I found a good deal of cracking on the c channel that the front axle is housed inside. There was 4" of cracking on both sides around the bolt hole used to mount the axle as well as cracking on the channel corner and underneath the channel. I was surpised to find the frame wledment as an orderable part on the Sears Parts Direct website so I ordered the weldment assembly and will attempt to move everything off the old frame to the new one. For $140 shipped I felt it was worth a try instead of the alternative of buying a new tractor. I have seen some chatter about this cracking being a problem for years with similar tractors. Does anyone know of extra support braces that can be installed around this channel to try to extend the life? I have read where Sears has performed this repair previously on cracked assemblies.
