It looks like it has the industrial steering linkage.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

I also see a Howard Despeeder on it. I would suspect someone redid the linkage and could not get the wheels to line up properly so they took the key out and welded the arms in a new position.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

I think you are seeing the final, but it appears the wheel is set out, or the finals are turned backwards.

Yes, there are two despeeders, one on each side. Thanks to Barnyard for reposting a couple of rear end shots from my earlier album.



Here is how the finals are mounted.
How does one check the oil in the pan with it sideways like this?

it also has the 18 inch steering wheel vs the normal 15 inch like it was set up for a 105 mower but no foot throttle

Pretty common "farmer fix" to weld the steering arms on to the spindles like that, when you can't keep them clamped tight.

The steering wheel and front linkage looks like the parts from a Farmall 140 tractor.

Those would have been standard on this tractor. This is what is known as either a modified or customized Loboy.

............
The normal loboys have a level plug that takes a socket wrench without a socket on it facing the rear on each final up where it bolts to the rear end/axle extension tube. Since yours are rotated 180 degrees from those I would say they are both facing forward. I don't know where the despeeders get their oil from or if they have to be checked?

The Despeeders have their own oil supply with a level plug being on the side opposite the engaging lever.
