Kenny, just curious, what did you do to get the proper belt rotation if the engine is in backwards? Did you flip the belt or something ?

The belt goes thru two idler pullies (kind of like a mule drive) then to the varidrive pulley which is vertical. Very easy to swap rotation.

Here's a pic of how they go.

No problem, Keith. If I end up with a much better tractor in the end, I'm more than happy to spend a few days fooling with little stuff. Plus, I can sit and think a bit deeper about the whole project. I've been 'fixing' a few small issues and deciding the best way to go about others. Keeps it from getting rushed.

Kenny, could use some #'s from you, one is the distance from the bottom ARM pivot at the tractor, to the rockershaft pivot point, allready have the overall ARM length at 20.5" . Also at what point the arms start to offset.
Now with that new shaft ,and attaching points, you will be able to mount it quite close to the chassis. This will add more carrying capacity , and also increase the traction action:) lifting power should be limited to about 7-800# .any more is a waste and could do some serious damage , like bending arms and such. :)

Keith, I'll have to go down to the tractor for some of those dimensions. I haven't stuck with the drawing completely. I'll get back to you soon.

Been a while since I posted here. Got some goodies today from skyryder2 (Keith).Thank you! Anyway, I now have a healthy rockshaft for the 3-point plus a few extras. WooHoo! I'm a happy camper. Now I can start this all back up again. May take a bit of studying to make this work, but I know it will.

I have decided to hold off a bit more, waiting for the new cylinder and hoses to arrive. I am getting the frame painted and the rear wheels widened to see what that will do for space back there. Just have to be careful with the new paint and not scratch it all up. I did get the 1" rock shaft cleaned of paint and welded on brackets, so it's ready to fab to my specs (whatever those are going to be :bigrofl:) I am still debating attaching the cylinder to the original rock shaft and run a heavier rod back to the 3-point. 5" stroke may be too much for it though! It is a 7/8" shaft. And I want to make a mid mount grader to fit under there later on. Maybe a different cylinder for that. So many options, so little time!
