Summary:
Hi guys, this might be a silly question. I have attached a picture to this thread. Am I right to refer to the component ( shown with the red dash line ) as the steering tie rod? If not, what is the name for that rod?
Thank you

No I would call that the "stub axle" or perhaps the wheel spindle. The tie rod is the thing that supplies the turning torque from the steering box.

The horizontal part with wheel bearings is the stub axle.
The near vertical part with steering bearings is the kingpin.
Since it is all one casting on a tractor it is called a “kingpin / stub axle”, or some similar combination.
