I"ll chime in. Another trick with the loader steering is to get another set (or two) to fab together, of steering arms that go on top of the spindles. The trick is to weld them together adding about 2" more in length. Just be sure that when the front axle shifts up and down that the long tie rod steering arm doesn"t hit the dog legs. Doing this trick will in fact add to the turning radius of the tractor but you still have steering brakes. No?
Next trick. So you got a loader. Hopefully you also have a diamond plate reinforcement welded into the back of the front axle assembly. I do. No, it"s not for sale. I did this when the wife desired an FEL on her TO-20. This was also done because the original Ford 9N that the FEL came on had 5 stress cracks and the last one broke very nicely once I brought the 9N home and off loading it from the trailer. "^&%$^&*((^ !!!"
As for turningg the 30 into a 20 don"t forget the air cleaner top is also different. No?

Come on Bruce.. I KNOW you have a camera... what's with the stove element? I can't picture it. As for the longer arms... hey I am in bind with the factory parts on the 202... the tie rods on the ??right side? are so close to the loader frame... some conditions, rough ground- they knock or get... hooked there till the wheel drops down again. And I did the steering rebuild kit thing. Loaders are such a pain, almost makes a comfortable high quality shovel look good...

Oh yeah, how do you put diamong plate steel on a cast iron axle? Nickel welding rod I believe and an old stove with a working top element and the sides punched out to run the axle out of the sides. The rest is up to you. Another cheat is to have a buddy do it for you and all you need to do is scrounge the materials. . . I will however admit that, Yes! I am the best welder in the USA! All I need is JB weld to fill the low spots and gobs of paint to hide the rest of the uglies. Me and my 115 Volt Lincoln welder can do it all!

Oh, BTW... I bought a TO 20 airfilter and the mason jar dustbowl affair at the FENA show.. have 4 19" rims, just foam filled all the tires last now I am broke... so but besides dash punch outs, what's in a 20? Casting dates and engine Cu IN's tag...what else? I am studying my friend's never messed with 20, his dad bought new in 1950... not a lot to notice... I worked on a TE 20 across town... oh yeah lots to compare when next to a UK/Standard engine model...
The pics are of a family's heirloom 20 at a show this spring. The granddad ordered it with this huge counter/timer in the dash... I could do that to the air hole in the 30's dash... a huge tack! and it would look rather cool doncha think? Finding another tack drive generator would be the hard part....
