I have an old Craftsman saw 113 series. The stock fence on my saw has a “spring” underneath the head of the fence. The fence works like this. The head has two guides on the outside edge (closest to the operator). The fence rides an 1 1/4” angle rails, the vertical side facing the saw and pointed downward. The fence head has a small metal angle with a plastic part that rides on the inside edge of the 1 1/4” angle rail. The metal angle presses the fence head against the two guides on the outside of the fence head. In this manner the fence remains square to the saw when moved. If you fence has this spring, you might need to adjust it.

I can post some pictures of the arrangement tomorrow if you want. Also see if you can find a manual (online Sears has many) for your saw and look at how to adjust your fence.
