Sounds like the axle slipped out of the differential. There is usually a snap ring on the axle which holds it in place. This could have broken, came loose, etc,

Major surgery needed.

check out the steering connecting rod. its the rod that goes from left to right front wheels. if it is not completely straight, either bend it straight or buy a new one.
Also, could be your front axle if you dont have the cast iron heavy duty axle.

John deere 145 toe in adjustment

Adjust by measuring between the wheels {metal rim} at the 9 and 3 o'clock positions. I.e, halfway point on the rim at the front and rear. You can measure between the tire, but it is more difficult to get a good, repeatable measurement. If it were an MTD, you could adjust the toe by bending the tie rod/ drag link.

Craftsman Lawn tractor - When turning to the left the Left front wheel turns much farther then the right front wheel does on a hard right turn. Almost perpendicular to the tractor. Busings are brand new....

I've noticed this on other Craftsman and MTD mowers. The ones with the one main steering rod from the steering wheel to the left wheel and a connecting rod from the left wheel to the right wheel. I think that since we are advised to mow in a counter-clockwise direction, they design the mowers to turn tighter towards the left. It's in the design just like you suspected.
