The less wiggle in the system the better overall for steering. If you have a decent spare and this will be your goto tractor then why not swap them. Check the spares to make sure they aren’t bent or coming with additional issues.
I plan on starting the tractor tonight and then moving forward with the painting.
I rebuild the carb last night and lost my notes on how many turns the screws were in. Does anyone know off hand what they should be set to for factory?
also where do the long bolts on the head go? Completely did not notice the different length of the bolts.
