Like I said in my original post. I just got the table saw and haven't done much to it. So last night, instead of trying to mess with the fence first, I cleaned the rust off the table top (since I was planning to do this anyways).
I took off the fence, and all the rails. @allpurpose
to answer your question, yes there were bolts where you indicated but I did notice that as I was removing the nuts that some of them were really easy to remove.
I used PB blaster and some 00 steel wool and went to work. I scrubbed it twice. Cleaned it with acetone. Then I applied johnsons paste wax. 3 coats!. @Shop_Rat
I decided to apply some to the rails as well.
Then I put it all back together and started aligning the fence. I noticed that if I clamped it down and used the 4 bolts on top for alignment that it wasn't moving at all. So I loosened the clamp and then did the aligment and I believe that worked better. (only mentioning this because its different from whats in the manual).
After cleaning and waxing, the fence moved along the table like butter!! @JamesTinKS
I tried to remove as much slack as possible but it was binding and still had the slightest bit slop. BUT I was using quarter turns, I will try again tonight using the "few degrees" method.
I believe the fence movement and alignment is wayyyy better from when I started. Thank you guys for your help!!
Was able to align my fence, and now I'm happy
