In the process of getting the M setup so it will pull plow properly. I have back wheels set to spacing listed in plow operators manual. The front end is adjusted out one notch and I want to move it all the way in so inside of front tires are even with inside of back tires.
Are the tie rod ends supposed to be bent like this? Both sides are like that. They won't budge I'll probably need new ones I reckon. They are bent at the ends also.

You are correct that they are supposed to be straight, mine are.

They should be straight for sure. I think rusty acre ranch had a
good used set for sale. Those will be a pain to get adjusted
right.

Those look like they need a couple hours of elbow grease. Using a solid flat surface hammer and roll them until they are straight. Then pull the inner rod and do it again. Slide it back in again & do over. Use plenty of pb blaster in the ends and set screw hole. They will straighten. A big brass hammer works best if you have one.

I got the tie rods off and laid them out on a board and rolled them around while hammering on them. They are still not completely straight but after spraying them down with pb and working with them awhile I got them apart. I buffed them off with a wire wheel and lubed them now they work almost as good as new. I sprayed the front end down with pb as well and got it to move in. So now I have it all set the way it needs to be.
