I'm trying to finish my restoration on my 1955 400 diesel and need the steering arms for the wide front. Mine has the tie rods behind the axle and it's a row crop. I'm looking for part A9589. Can anybody help me out?

There was just a pair on eBay but someone stole them from me at the last second because I was stuck at work! Been looking for 3 years! I'll have to double check my book. A few guys on here have offered the complete front axle but I can't drive 2 days to get it and no body wants to trade a later steering setup either. Starting to get frustrated as this tractor has been a pain in my @ss since I brought it in the shop after a head gasket as the PO said turned into a block, sleeves, and a trans overhaul!

I have seen this front end show up on other tractors but it was originally available only on the first year of 400 production, prior to serial number 80696**. You would have to look and see. The LH steering arm is similar to the regular WFE but the splines are broached a little different.

You did not lose the bid you got skyped ,a common practice by many ,but not all sellers.Take a deep breaaaath!.I am looking thru the archives,because I recall someone talking about that wide front end was carried over into the later 730 830s.,but let me confirm that.Shoot me an email if you like.

Your tractor was the big 401,right?

Chuck, yes, mine is a big 400. I was high bidder for a week then someone picked it off at the last second! Good for raising the blood pressure a few notches. If I had one for a pattern I might be able to make more but those who have them won't let them go. The tractor has been a frustrating POS since it came home 4 years ago and there's been many times I've thought about parting it out since I'm into it so deep and I can't even move it. 4 fricken years in the same spot in my shop.

1031D,It looks kind of like a SCHWARTZ axle maybe you could adapt those parts.

Looked into that too. SCHWARTZ axles were keyed spindles these are tapered splined. I have the center piece and tie rods, just need the arms.

Give me a couple of days. I'll check and see what's on my partially parted one. (How do you like that name? Wouldn't dare call it a junker!) Got at least two busy days ahead of me. Will try to check Monday. I should either have the part you're looking for or a complete front minus hubs.

Jeff, thanks. All I really need is the steering arms because I don't know when I could maka a drive anywhere to get anything.
