Default putting a loader on a reversed F30

I have an F30 Farmall, that was botched with poorly done sbc [265ci]engine swap.I replaced the mutilated frame,added a 292 ci. straight 6 and a three speed and used the suspension with power steering from a 1980 Chevy 3/4T.
I want to reverse this tractor and add a loader. My question is : Do I mount the loader between the drive axle and the steering axle or mount it where the drawbar originally sat? If between the axles, do i mount it closer to drive wheel or closer to the steering axle?
many thank in advance,wayne

Sounds like an interesting project!! I'm no mechanic by far, nor an engineer, but my first thought would be toward rear to hold more weight, but then again when picking up a load the toward the front might counter-balance better.....

Good luck, and keep us informed, and with pictures!

Wish I had taken pics of the tractor when i got it-all that was savable of original frame [1/2in wall 2x4 rectangular tube] is shown in the second pic. Generally the tractor works well other than to long turning radius .
