Default Steering / Tie Rod Conundrum

After rebuilding the spindle pins and steering arms I am struggling with getting the two wheels in alignment for setting the toe-in. Following Tom Endy's instructions for installing the tie rod, I am left with a situation where the front wheels are not tracking in concert with each other. Basically, when one wheel is straight ahead, the other is toed in by over a half-inch when measured at the edge of the rim (I haven't mounted the tires yet. Tom's instructions make it sound easy, so maybe I am missing something.

The tie rod thread pitch appears to be 24 per inch, so how many turns of the tie rod would be needed to bring the wheels into alignment or is there some other way to resolve this?
