Did some more work on steering box. It's a bit tight but does move. Going to need to modify the top of the pto bracket to allow more room for the rack box. Also need to fab up the sides and get guides. Also some box mounting tabs. Then some tie rod adapters. Seems like a lot but a ton of fab is done. Shaft is in. Roll pin hole drilled and installed. Bearing mounting holes drilled and tapped. Gear rack milled, drilled and tapped. Going to use the oe steering stem but not the pinion gear setup.

Removed the oe tie rod and started making the mounting bracket. I want the rack to be able to unbolt from the tractor so the mount will be in 2 pieces. So far so good.

Haven't dressed any of the small section welds yet but the steering support bracket and steering box are officially welded. Also welded on a small 1/2" section of box tubing on the rack output so I can stitch together some kind of tie rod boot.

Next up is dressing the welds a bit and welding the bracket to the frame. Then cut and install the tie rods.

That we are. That crank is way too long IMO... But it'll be about 3/4" away after all said and done with the linkage.. No biggie.. maybe the centrifugal motion will assist the steering? LOL.

Well it looks like it's back to the drawing board for the old steering. After all was said and done I'm only able to get like 10 degrees of wheel turn. The tie rod ends are a bit large and contact the pinion gear. I have a game plan to use more of an oe steering setup. Stay tuned!

Woohoo I think it'll work! Now to trim off the excess material on the steering arm and make mounts on the frame. Woohoo!

Thanks man. I also have to cut the old steering truss support off.. No longer needed, but wasn't in my way for mockup. ;)

Trimmed and dressed the steering arm. Next up to bolt it to the frame and then continue on the rest of the steering. 742317b35bf61b33b1937b90df7e2589.jpg8d892c18ead972c66b5f11c95f4d1934.jpg
