Same as the original axle, steers easy due to longer steering arms and steering pivot bracket.

Very interesting Ernest Doe & Sons did a similar conversion on Case tractors for the "STETCH " form of cultivation wheel track was up to eight feet
 
Perhaps you could call your tractor not stretched but STETCH conversion

I cant claim to to be in Ernest Does league when it comes to tractors, what a guy, pity they don't make them now. I don't think I've stretched it more than a foot so it would need to be twice the width to match that and parking would be interesting.

Thankyou, Still learning though after all these years, all spent in engineering at some level or other. If other members require parts machining / forging / welding inc cast and aluminium sand casting send me a pm - I dont charge for my time and will always take a look Regards Dibanh
