Like the rack and pinion but you have it laying there turned the wrong way. (left end on the right side) I would like to see it after you are finished and hear how it steers. Those short racks get used in a lot of places for special projects. Have Fun!

It is positioned properly the way it is in the picture. If you flip it and mount it behind the axel it will steer backwards.you would have to mount it in front of the axle if you put the shaft on the left side of the tractor using the mustang ll rack. The ford escort or dodge omni rack would work on the left side of the tractor behind the axle. Keep the center line of the rack 3 1/2" to 4" from the center of the front axle to make it steer the best and still turn pretty sharp.

3 1/2 - 4 off center? which way? or positioned just that distance away from the axle? I was looking on a website that builds component tractors and have an idea in my head on where to hang the rack, still listening to suggestions.

Keep the rack parallel to the axel, if you look at it from the top the center af the axel to the center of the rack should be 31/2-4". This measurement makes it steer pretty sharp,if you move the rack farther from the axel it takes a 20 acre field to turn around in. Shorten up the steering arms on the axel to match this measurement. On the allis you can position the rack so that the stock steering shaft can be used with only one universal joint connected at the rack and an adapter or sleeve to connect it to your shaft.
