I never considered stops for fore/aft movement. I know Cub Cadet Super garden tractors have adjustable bolts to take fore/aft axle slop out. I think I'll take a look at the Massey design and see if there is a way to add an adjustment option.
I just looked at my 1855. The saddle that the axle sets in already has a couple of smaller bolts in it. I think those bolts can be replaced with larger bolts with wear pads welded to the heads. Then adjust those bolts rearward to just touch the axle. I think this would absorb any torque applied from the steering cylinder.
Great forum......where great ideas can be shared. As I said before, I never even thought about any front to rear stress being applied by a parallel to frame steering system. Definitely something to consider!
