I built a light front for a WC but only used B spindles. Take out all the old steering down to framerails. Weld in 2 pieces of channel about 3 in. apart. Put a swivel pin between them. Build a triangular frame down to desired height & width. Weld on pipe to fit the B spindles. Drill & tap pipes for grease zerks. Use a rack & pinion for a dune buggy-much cheaper than car. I thought it was too hard steering so put a steering quickener for race car in the steering rod turned around backward. BTW 5 bolt aluminum wheels fit a B hub perfect. I built mine mostly out of aluminum & lost about 150 lbs. I've pulled up to 5500 w/ 16.9-38's on with no front end problems. Don't have any pics but hope this helps. Good luck.

thanks for the reply, did you run the steering shaft in the same location, down the right side between the engine and frame?

Yes I did, I took off the square block the rod goes through. Made a guide above the U-joint like a styled WC. Turn the shaft to the center of tractor. Put on another U-joint then weld another guide to the bottom of the motor mount angle iron. Then on to rack & pinion. I had already replaced the steering rod w/ high strength tubing which probably made it easier. Doing that loses about 20 lbs. Those rods are HEAVY. Hope this helps.
