I was removing blackberries with the bucket on my 1955 Minn. Moline UB special ( wide front wheels ) not knowing there was a hole from a wind throw tree stump. Cuz I cant see thru the black berries. Just then I broke my left side steering arm... ( Dang ) but that aint all ... I also some how broke the pivot points on the bucket. But that aint all.... I ran into a large wasp nest and yes they were mean. After all I did manage to creep backwards with the right wheel kinda steering me and made it back to the shop. So I am here asking if any one would know where to find a left side steering arm ( the part from the ball joint to the spindle ) I can fix the bucket but the left side steering arm broke inside the spindle. Thank s for reading.

I am not 100% on a spindle but the internals of a special front end are same as a 5star m5 ect.

E type front end? 10A5391 left steering Common to UB or ZB. Nothing to do with being a Special.

So they retained the Lower portion of the front end of the older tractors? I know a special has an interchangeable front end it's not quite like a utu or ube. I also know on a tricycle they are common to a five star. When a customers had a problem that's what Welters took the parts out of.

I'm not saying GB is wrong. I'm just trying to figure this out. I googled it and a special front axle does look a lot like the old e front. In my are there are very few s type and pretty much no e type mm tractors. So my tame away is that they upgraded the bloster and retained the old adjustable wide front. Perhaps GB would verify or correct me on this?

Looking in a parts book last night, steering arms are different for a U than R or Z. I did not go compare them on the tractors in the shed.

Ok I'm with that but a special has power steering and an interchangeable front whereas everything older did not. The models were two letter not three. The axle looks the same but everything between the axle and the radiator would be different on a special and a UBE wouldn't it?

Three different arms R and Z used 10A1413 U and UB till 55 10A2239. Later 10A5391.UB ZB
Later axle may have been little heavier.

Seen several Specials and owned 6. None have power steering or have ever seen one with. Many designations had 3 letters or 4. UBE diesel UB D Special UTS D special. In 1955 UB axle made heavier probably for diesel. Have 8 with E front ends.

That's odd. I have never seen a UB Special without Power Steering'
