Hello - I am building a Farmall B and want to make an A instead. What all do I need? If I get the A front Axle is that all I need to do? Will the tin and steering wheel shaft all work? I got the rear end converted already (removed the left axle extension).
Thanks for any help. If anyone knows where I can get an A front end in Iowa let me know too.
Thanks again.

Because I have lots of parts and not lots of money. I like working on tractors too.

You will have to change the front of the engine that contains the steering box and axle mount.
Tin and steering shaft should work.

The lower grill is different. Also, the axle on the B is not the same as an A, you want to start with a BN. It will probably work fine, though. The operator platform on the A is the same as a BN also, 4 inches narrower than a B. In addition, make sure you always keep a wheel weight on the right wheel, unless you are going to put on the heavy cast wheel center from the A.

Dave You might want to rethink this project. Per the parts book you will need the compete steering gear housing and all that goes with it.(not steering wheel)Other words the only thing you can use is the steering and the 1st key and maybe the bolts that mount housing to engine. A is diffent from AV and B and BN are diffent from the 1st two. LOL MD

Doing both an A & B is probably cheaper (and easier)in the long run.

Today's Featured Article - An Old-Time Tractor Demonstration - by Kim Pratt. Sam was born in rural Kansas in 1926. His dad was a hard-working farmer and the children worked hard everyday to help ends meet. In the rural area he grew up in, the highlight of the week was Saturday when many people took a break from their work to go to town. It was on one such Saturday in the early 1940's when Sam was 16 years old that he ended up in Dennison, Kansas to watch a demonstration of a new tractor being put on by a local dealer. It was an Allis-Chalmers tractor dealership, ... [Read Article]
