I was wanting to put a narrow front on my B for something different. What will be my parts list to do this?

What's so different? All Farmall B's were either tricycle or single fronts.

You will need complete pedestal with gears, drag link and plate that sets between pedestal and raditor also steering arms both ends.
your wheel hubs will work and your steering gear box will also work just install arm 18o degrees from b setting.
If you want to move forward with the project I have all the parts to do the change over.

Actually you can use your B steering box if you do it like I did.

Dick, the front of the steering rod looks like the ball joint used on the C.. If you have the B bell crank on the back steering box, did you change the C steering rod to the B ball socket ?

Wide fronts are hard to find. It took me over a year and some rock turning to find a wide front for my C which is actually an adjustable wide front off of a B. Pricey too.

I'm in Virginia, however I have already located a C front pedestal with Arm that I am waiting on delivery.
I plan on keeping my wide in case I want to switch it back.

Yep and in my area Bs also seem to be few and far between. In all the years I have been here I have only had 2 Bs come and go from the place and the first one my dad got in north Missouri back in the late 70s and hauled it down here to the farm

I welded the end or a C arm to a B arm. I worked on the arm length as well as bringing out to where it would clear everything. Nothing difficult.
