This is the way that I'm leaning now, even though I did give it a good look already. I suppose that I could separate the bucket and frame to get a better idea of what I'm dealing with. Sounds like a good summer project.

With regards to the scraper wearing uneven, it was worn this way when I bought the machine and the skid shoes were pretty well gone so I assume that the scraper was eaten up by the previous owner. I did replace the shoes right away, but the pulling problem persisted. It may be that I'll have to bite the bullet and get a new scraper on it and see what the alignment really comes out to and go from there.

My main reason for the thread was to hopefully rule out any problems with the drive system, and it sounds like the consensus is that the drive system is not likely the issue.

Well, there’s your problem!

I’m thinking a bushing that is out of round this much would be the issue. This is on the right side, same direction it pulls. I measured the shaft that rides in the bushing and it was out of round by 0.1 mm basically still in new condition.

Will order a new bushing tomorrow. Thanks everyone for the help.
