This is how it looks currently:
I almost might call this as a piece of art, but it’s not even ready yet. 😉
But the back side of the front axle is now ready and next task will be to create the front mount for the floating mechanism. This front mount needs to be boltable or otherwise it would not be possible to take the diff out if/when it needs maintenance.
I probably also weld the mounts for the tie-rod before moving on to build the actual frame for the tractor. After the frame front section has been built I will add couple of stiffeners to the wheel mounts. I have already a plan for the stiffeners, but I don’t want to add them now to make sure there will be enough clearance for the movement of the front axle.
