I have a HT 20 with a busted up plastic dash panel.
My HT 23 parts list says instrument panel is part number 1733053.
My HT 23 has an aluminum instrument panel.
It may have been replaced.
If I look on Ebay, I see similar looking panels.
Would a tube/mid size frame dash fit a large frame tractor?

It should fit. My dash on my HT23 came from a late model tube frame with the same throttle/choke controls. No.clue why they went plastic in the later years. Im just glad they kept it the same as previous models so it can be swapped

I swapped in a tube frame dash onto my HT23. Just have a look at the tube frame dash that you buy. You may just need to drill a hole or plug a hole as some had the oil pressure and cruise control lights on the dash, some did not. I had to drill a hole for my cruise control but no big deal. This is my HT23 with that tube frame dash.

Thanks I'm very happy with how it came out. It actually has a loader on it now. Here's a picture of it along side my 1556.

The loader on the 1556 is a Johnson Work Horse midget model 10. They were advertised on the 800 900 and 1000. This one came off of a 1050.
