Question about Craftsman Contractor Series 10" Table Saw Model 113.299315 W/xr-2412 Rip Fence
My saw blade and riving knife are not centered in my table insert. I just bought this saw and are putting it together for the first time.

The most important thing is that the blade and riving knife are centered with each other. If not, you may have to shim the riving knife.
The bolts that hold the carriage under the table are intentionally sloppy so that you can loosen them and align the blade/knife with the miter gauge slots.
Lay a long metal straight edge against the side of a carbide blade teeth with the blade all the way up, and make sure the straight edge is parallel with the miter gauge slots in the table. Then tighten the bolts on the underside.

I ran into that kind of problem with my Craftsman 10 table saw. I (an usual) over analyzed the problem and looked at moving the entire motor assembly from left to right slightly. In the end, I found that that the blade stablizer plates I used on the left and right of the blade, moved the blade that little bit needed to make the blade tips make contact. I removed the two stablizer plates, reinstalled the blade with the normal to flat washers and gave it a try. The blade now cleared the insert when pushed all the way to 45 degrees.
You might want to look to make sure there are no extra washers/spacers on the arbor that might move the blade slightly left or right from its normal position.
