A 44 and a 30 have the same steering set up. I have a Schwartz wide front on a 30, it works good, but you have to use the hubs from a 44 and the wheels. The Schwartz wide front was a conversion kit to convert a narrow front to a wide and will only work with the steering box from a narrow front.Looks to me that you have all the parts needed except the steering box from a narrow front. If you use one from a factory wide front it will steer backwards. The one thing I like about the Schwartz is it keeps the tractor short, fits under the frame like the narrow front, the factory wide front stuck way out front of the frame.

44 and 30 have very similar if not the same steering mechanisms.
