Bern, can't thank you enough for your suggestion to remove the bolts and make sure they were contacting the wedge flange. Excellent advice as usual. In fact, both those bolts were a little bent and the threads in the jack holes were messed up. I realized this when I pulled them out to clean and oil them. Wouldn't have done that w/o your suggestion. Left side didn't need that - all was well. I bought new bolts, ran them in & out of the holes several times and cleaned the hole threads, then they went in all the way to the wedge. 15 licks later, the wedge gave up. Both wheels set in line w/the fronts now. Many thanks again. Without those bolts making contact, I'd still be out there beating and banging... Couple of pics - 1 is finished product, tractor on 72" centers. Other is shot of great penetrating oil I found. Works better than anything else I've ever bought, except maybe for Howe's.

Glad it worked out for you. I learned that lesson myself the hard way, but got a good workout in the interim. Hopefully you did as well.
