Help with setting up a plough

Many thanks for all the help given previously on this. I'm ploughing with it at the moment, and the plough legs are noticeably not vertical. The Dowdeswell ploughing guide mentions this and says to adjust the "vertical setting bolts". Can someone tell me what/where these are please?

TIA.

The stops on the L and R of the headstock that limit how far the ram extends when it turns over. Not far from where the lift arms of the tractor attach. They probably screw up and down if that makes sense

Thanks @Flat 10 . Is it this:

I.e. that bolt that's roughly in the centre of the photo? This is looking out the back of the cab.

The ram's in front of the headstock on mine. It looks like there's just one adjuster bolt on it. I've fiddled with that, and also changed the depth wheel slightly and the whole thing's much better now.
