Simple answer, no, not that easy. You need to change the whole front casting and axle

I have to leave the forum for a little while, but when I come back I"ll send some pictures how I extended my 2390, it"s just the same as a 2590. If your good at welding it"s simple.

Back when those tractors where only a few years old there was a local machine shop that cut those housings apart and rewelded and changed a few things to make them a long wheelbase. I do not know what was all done. But now decades later I would think salvage yards should be able to fix you up with the right parts to do the swap. Rod.

I had all the steel cut at the plant I was working at. The box is the framework. Underneath is a 2x4 in. bar drilled out to take the same bushing as the original mounts. I had a steel bar the same dia. As the pivot shaft. Lined it up and tacked all welds . removed box and welded it. Holes were drilled to mount on front of tractor. I did this to my 2390 and did the same for my cousins 2290. This was in 1982 and have not had a weld problem or nothing. Was great as it rides and drives a lot better. Just added hoses to same lines on steering. In 1972 I extended the front axle on my 930 by 26 in.. and it never gave me a spec of trouble.

jimmie did you lengthen yours past the 118 inch wheelbase of a factory long model. l was thinking of reversing mine and moving it ahead to about 124 inch wheelbase. does anyone know the wheelbase of a long 2594 .

No you can't just flip the axle been there done that,a lot of time an words,i've cut an welded as others said,but the easiest way is go get a extended center section,burn't is usualy what I get,several will fit from the 2094 up,i think it is worth the time,better ride,looks,an resale.

I believe it's longer as the whole axle goes ahead of the front pivot point. I had a long wheelbase 2590 and I know my 2390 (changed) was longer. I'll measure mine sometime and post it. The factory long is just closer to the front mount.

Agree with Jimmie and Rod, and we flipped lot's of 1370-1570s and 90 series too,with a company Rod mentioned that I suppose is long out of business.
But try a salvage yard for one
I never cared much for the short wheel base on them. That is why I admired the GP 30 series
Calm down Tom!!! HeHe

The book says short wheelbase 104. mine is 123. The nice part about my ext. is you can go back to short . I never altered the tractor frame in any way. Well I did use the front suitcase wht. bracket as part of my ext. but main axle and tractor no change.
