My dealer said to get a little more stability with my TC29D (without supersteer) that they turn the wheels out, i.e. they put the right front on the left and visa versa; therefore, making the wheel stance a little wider. They do this for the front and rear. Hovever when I did this, boy those rear tires with water are heavy, the right front tire comes in contact with the hydraulic transfer block at the bottom right frame. Has anyone got a solution for this? Thanks, pete

There's a note in my Ford 1710 owner's manual that say 'never reverse the front wheels on a 4wd system.' Another note for 2wd systems says 'never use wide tire settings in rough terrain due to high steering effort and kick-back.' I think TC's are similar to Fords, so maybe reversing the fronts isn't such a good idea. I'd check with a dealer to ensure that these old 1710 warnings don't apply to your TC.

I'm not sure of the reasons why the manual doesn't recommend reversing the fronts on a 4wd tractor. I remember the auto hot-rodding fashion way back when of reversed rims. At the time some people said not to do it on the fronts because it put the heavier load on the smaller outside wheel bearings. Something similar could apply to tractors I guess.

Aside from the question of whether it's a good idea (if the rears are reversed, I'm not sure how much extra stability is gained by reversing the fronts as well). I was thinking that adjustable stops might be an answer. I took a quick tour through my repair and parts manuals and didn't find anything. It was too quick a tour to be conclusive though. I did find a mystery picture for 1510's. It looked like a 4wd axle, and the pic showed a king-pin arm with a bolt-head and lock-nut that looked suspiciously like a steering stop. You might look for something like that, but if you find something, I'd make sure that limiting the wheel travel is its intended purpose.

Thanks for your in-depth answers. I did call my dealer today regarding the dish-out/dish-in on my TC29D. He said what you mentioned lastly and there is a steering limiting bolt on the inner lower side of the wheel hub and this is what he said I had to turn out to lengthen it. It does limited the tire from contacting the hydraulic metal conduit. I did appreciate the other concerns regarding the wear on the bearings. I'll pose that question to my dealer. Thanks so much. pete ....
