I'm building the lift rods for the 3pt on my 318 and need some dimensions.
I know the bolts are 6" long but what I would like to know is what is the combined length of the bolts and the brackets that bolt on to the lift arms.

Heres some diagrams. The dimensions are blurry but you should be able to scale the parts you need from the ones you have made.

Brian,
Do you have a clearer picture of these drawings? Do you have the complete set? If so, can you email them to me at terry 316 jd at gmail dot com.

Sorry Terry, those came off of WFM. They were blurry there as well.

Thanks Brian

The pieces I need to make are the ones in the lower right of the second diagram. Unfortunately there is not much for info on those parts.

Would the photos here be of any help to you. You may be able to use existing parts to scale the ones you need. Have a look.Hitch Kits
Is there anyone out there with a 318 who could measure the parts in question?

They were in the forum. I just did a quick search for 3pt plans and came up with them. They are just a bit too small to read the numbers. I was on my way out so didn't do any further searching.

Brian-I looked at WFM and read the whole thread that you got those diagrams from. Didn't say anything about the pieces I need.

Terry- That thread on WFM is where I got my dimensions for the lift arms. In that one all he says is that he built them from some brackets for a barn door track but doesn't have any dimensions.

xshooter, I read it also and found nothing to help. I happen to have a pair of those barn door brackets. If I can dig them out, I might be able to get some dimensions from them if you want.

I think you can get pretty close by using the diagrams and measuring a known part scale it to the unknown one on the diagram. By looking at it it's not something that needs to be really close. Using your lift arm as a reference you should be able to scale those parts pretty accurately.

I played with the part and here is my best guess on it:
