I think there is something fundamentally wrong to be that far out.
Is it possible that the casting is cracked, that when the trunion hits the 45degree stop there is some kind of flex (or opening of a break)?

Easy check might be to tilt to 30 degrees and lock it, then see if you get an ‘intermediate’ value between [email protected] degree tilt to the 0.220” at 45.
being out a almost a quarter inch from front to back on a saw with only a 7 inch blade would be completely unusable and dangerous, not just give you poor/burned cuts.

I think your geometry calculation is right, but there is something major wrong with the saw to be so far off.
