Dont the plow manuals usually tell what width to set wheels at for plow to cut a full cut? Pretty sure they do. If you shift front cross hitch over too far you will be off center off draft and cause tractor front end to pull one way or the other. Could be hard on both tractor and plow i would think.

Much smarter thing to do if you can't keep the wedges super tight is to get 3 1/4 clamps with a tightner bolt (similar to muffler clamps) on either side of the hub and tighten the clamps up. This will prevent the wheel from moving. I have seen what welding on the axle will do on these tractors. A friend of mine did what you are talking about on a 1066 and 6 months later the axle broke right off at the weld. These axles are made of real strong steel like 8620 or 4140 and the weld reduces the strength in its vicinity to that of 1020 steel (1/3 the strength)

Tipping the front of the share down with the eccentric bolt may help keeping the plow in the ground. The wheels should be set out to approximatly 30 inches center of tractor to INSIDE of tire for proper operation. As far as welding on the axle your better off throwing the plow away.
