Will the top link mount to that same rockshaft bracket as the cylinder?
I see the lower arms pin to the factory sleeve hitch mounting holes.
What are you planning for stabilizers, just chains or turnbuckles?
Also, are you trying to be more like Keith? LOL

Casey, I hope to have hyd. on this tractor in the summer. Not sure how the cylinder will be yet.
Top link is still in planning, probably get one from TSC. And I'll use chains for stabilizers, not much room for turnbuckles.
Thought I'd throw it out here and see if more ideas come about. The rockshaft is in the same location as the one for the sleeve hitch. May be able to use the manual lift for a while, has a spring assist.
I can rotate the view if need be. Right now I am deciding on the top of the levelers. Should have at least 14" of lift, probably more.
I may give the tires a bit more clearance to the bends. That will lengthen the lower links a bit, no problem right now.
It will be a full Cat 0, not a Sears Cat 0.

Kenny, if at all possible , pull from the axles like the Ford, and try to keep the arms as straight as possible ,this way you can grab anything with them. An arm 18-20" long, 14" at the tractor and 18-19" at the other end when relaxed is about perfect. Make the rocker shaft and arms as wide as need be , offsets are a pain , especially when plowing, and they limit side to side travel.
I have both setups running ,and tested, the straight arms are the easiest to use hands down!

Haven't found any Sears three point stuff around here. Figured I'd build my own attachments.
First pic is the 26X12's, second was the 23X10.50's. The lower links will use the stock sleeve hitch mounts. Wider wheels would be a help.
P.S. These lower arms will work on the Ford also!

I hear what you are saying, Casey. Just be simpler (to me) to have 2 sets of arms.

I hear what you are saying about the shipping Kenny.
