    My bed seems uneven at the y-axis. As shown in the image where the arrows are pointed, it seems that this side level is higher than the back side. So when it starts to print, the front side has less space between the hot end and bed versus the back side. It could be the railing on the front side is a little higher or bent. Is there a way to fix this?

    On that really old Robo? No. You're pretty much screwed except for replacing the Y-carriage with a newer design on your own.

    You could implement mesh leveling as an upgrade to correct for that but you should be able to shim the rear to make it the same as the front

    Shim the rails. That is all you can do on a beta.

    Add glide plates for the carriage to ride on, front and back.
