Thank you! What about the groove that the left side was worn? Is that okay or should something be done? And when you say turn the bolts out to meet the axle you mean back them out to put pressure on the bolt head?

Do not make the the bolts tight to the axle. leave a bit of space between the bolt head and the axle pad. What you have now is too much space but make sure the axle is pushed to the front as far as it can go before you adjust them.
And what a center pivot? Im not seeing it on a diagram?

The axle has one bolt in the middle that it pivots on. Because people don't grease and adjust the bolts to the axle pads the center pivot bolt and the axle get egg shaped from the front to back movement. You can drill that out and put a brass bushing in there to fix the slow/sloppy steering also.
I have seen guys weld new pads on the axle but I don't think you need that. just grease it, adjust both bolts and you should be good.
