Kenny, any way you can incorporate some sort of a skid plate/protector under that cylinder.
With that little ground clearance, I think it'd be worth the effort.

Looking into that, Will. I'll still have around 7.5-7.75" clear.

Looking good Kenny. Curious to see it all working.


So am I, Casey!

You cant tuck that cylinder up in there a little higher and closer to the axle ? Or is it already at the axle?
Raise it up so the rod is parallel to the arm and nail it! As for the center link mounts that's easy, if you want you could do like the massey has, but personaly I would make a set of 3 holes lower, you will gey more lift at the rear of the implement.

I am making the lower mount with the rod thru it. With that, I can see if it will swing back up and under more, but I don't think much more. I don't want it interfering with the pin for the lower link and the rear end is real close on the inside. The mount has to be wide enough to provide clearance for the hose to hook up at the bottom, So right close to where it is will probably be the final spot It took a bit of thinking to figure out how to hang the inner side of the mount. I'll know more today. It was the end of the day before I got the hangers bored to 3/4" for the rod. All I have to get that size hole is a bi-metal hole saw.

Well, things look a bit different as of today! Got the adjuster links completed and the rock shaft hooked to the lower arms. Got some adjusting to do. Upper limit is 19.5", lower is 2". I know how to correct this and will have that done tomorrow. Then I can concentrate on the cylinder mount. After that, it is the pump mount. Then find somewhere to get hoses made. Ahhhhh, progress is sweet.

Looks like real good progress Kenny :thumbs: , I like that stack of blocks in the first picture, looks like one of my temporary supports when my favorite lifting tool is not within reach (or I am too lazy to get it).
I got an old fashion bumper jack (favorite lifting tool) from the local auto junkyard, the type that had a hook that fit in a slot on the car bumper. I can use it with just the hook or hang a chain on the hook for a different connection. I put a pin through the base to keep it on then screwed the base to a piece of 2 x 6 for stability. I use it all the time for lifting this or that. In your case stick a piece of re-rod through your swivels and your ready to go. Just thought I'd mention that, works good for me. :)

I just haven't looked for something to go across and the blocks are easy to move out of the way. It's coming along, quite the learning curve working here. Not as simple as I thought it would be. But I will enjoy it when I'm done.

Looks like your getting somewhere with this 3pt, you got to build yours from scratch, the one I'm working on is already done just made for a different model, I got it easy.

I did opt for the split collars to get things set up. That was a good move. I have some interference points, especially the upper limit. I'll take it apart this morning and fix that.

Got rid of the interference problems! I now have free movement from 3.5" to just over 20". WooHoo! Took the afternoon off to celebrate!
