I have a complete OTACO tractor conversion kit that I was told was for a Model A. What, if any, is the difference to a Model T?

Nothing would bolt together or work if you tried using a Model A conversion on a T chassis or vice - versa.

So what is different? All I see are I beams and a square bar for an axle. The taper on the pinions should be the same on an A and T. I am trying to make a positive identification. I do have the other support bar that goes forward also. I have tried Google search but not finding much. To see one mounted from a rear view would be helpful. Am I missing some parts here? I do have the wheels, pinions and bearings.OTACO

If I'm seeing that right, it is basically an axle "extender", and it uses the stock axle to 'power' the wheels via pinions?

Very interesting.

Maybe do a drum to drum comparison of an A and a T rear axle and compare them to your setup?

Are the axle end caps marked
do you have the drive gears wheels and the pinions?
Model A axle is wider looks a lot like a Pullford

End caps say Taco or Otaco. Have the wheels and pinions also.
