The Allis 416S I picked up a short while back was missing the steering wheel. I got to scrounging through some things and found a wheel from a Craftsman. I remembered I had the shaft for it, so I decided to use this as a temporary fix. I had been using a short piece of 5/16" rod to steer it with when I got it running. This will work much better.

Here's what I had to adapt to:

This is the Sears wheel and shaft:

I took a 3" piece of 1" tube and split it. Kept going until it fit the 3/4" shaft nicely. Welded it back together:

Drilled a 5/16" hole through to attach it:

Cut the sears shaft to fit in and welded that together:

And here is the result. The wheel is 1" higher than 'stock', but I think it will work until a proper wheel can be found.

I will give the adapter a coat of paint this weekend to hold off rust. May even squirt the wheel.

I find many times the wheels are too low for my liking and if I add an extension on it to bring up higher, I like it better!  The Speedex where bad for low wheels.

GL, the 1" won't be much different, but can understand about one being too low. I'm a medium sized person, so shouldn't create any issue for me.
