Front wheels alignment how-to guide

Where could I find a how-to guide to align the front wheels?

Feels like the steering wheel is off a few splines on the shaft and that should be a simple fix but I'd like to rule out a wrong alignment first. It never bothered me much, but prospective buyers are.

I'd like to figure this out myself before paying somebody

I have searched the forums and did not find a clear guide. I'll go watch generic ones on youtube but I'd like to find something specific to the Viking or Rhino if it applies.

I think from memory that the toe-in is meant to be between 5 and 15mm wider at the back of the tire. Failing wildbill's post if it's driving straight and not scrubbing tires I'd just pop the steering wheel off and stick it back on straight.
