Boy howdy, talk about being unprepared and lacking in more ways than one!!! That was me today after I drove about 75 miles to work on the 70 where I have it stored in a barn. I had fully intended to order the necessary manuals of which at least one should tell me how to adjust the wheel width for the back tires. But did I? No!!!! ( To make matters worse, a very nice guy drove a lot further than I had to and brought his trailer to haul it for me. His trailer can only haul items 80 inches or less in width. With the way the wheels are spaced now, they are set about 90 inches from outside to outside.
I managed to break several of the bolts loose with the impact wrench, but couldn't get the bolts loosened on the inner side of the wheel since I didn't bring the right tool for that.
Is it possible to narrow the back wheel spacing on a model 70 to less than 80 inches? If my memory is right, there are 13.6 - 38 tires on the back.
It was such a rushed ordeal to meet up at the farm today and I had little time to try and make a list of what tools to bring.
There's a bolt on the outside of the wheel center that runs perpendicular to the axle and appears to be what locks in the axle cross grooves. I'm able to make it move a litte bit up and down, but don't know what is the proper procedure for going about adjusting the wheel spacing on the rear axle.
Can anyone offer some helpful advice on this subject?
Thanks in advance
