I am in the process of building a narrow front for a cub cadet 100 and just wondering if they are like the rest of the narrow front conversions where they steer opposite left is right right is left????

I'll post a pic when the wife gets home because I have no idea how to post pics on a I pad.

Thanks guys girls for any help with this and if anyone has any pics of there front end conversions please post a pic please

Why would the wheels turn the opposite direction that the sterring wheel?

That sounds like an engineering problem!

Wow, that would be tough to get used to.
I love seeing the single conversions. In many cases, they are an homage to their bigger brothers.

I took a round fender jd axel and used that 1"rod and 3/4 rod for the rim 1/2" x 5x width of frame to mount jd axel too. I still haven't finished it yet been really busy and am working on other things that need to be done first. I can get a pic or 2of the pedestal if you want to see..... It won't be till a few days tho
