If nobody can find a NOS or used part, I wonder if I could use something like this and just rig the mounting...

Thanks, it'll take a little work to get it usable, but what doesn't on a 40 year old tractor :)


Congrats on getting the 3pt.

That would be awesome... I got mine welded up and it seems okay but doubt it would handle the stress of the 3 point... I'll put it on and play with it. I mig welded it spot welds only to minimize heating of the cast. Tried to keep the whole thing cool, allowed it to cool in between welds and none of the welds seemed to crack and it seems strong but like I said I have no idea about how much stress it'll take.


Oh, I edited this post to say I'm not a welder or a machinist or a metallurgist... it looked like cast iron and I used my craftsman (ducking) 110 volt mig welder to weld it. Thats all.


Did a look today and turns out the ones i have are for the rockshaft mounting and not the 3 point one.

If the bore size is correct and it is not to large to fit in the OEM location you should be OK. May have to relocate to mounting holes though.

Thanks BHTS, and thanks ducky.. that what I was thinking. I'm going to install mine and see how it goes, if it breaks, I didn't lose anything and if it works... I got lucky.

3point.JPG 3point.JPG As promised, I have posted a pic when I was working on the 3 point. Got the bearing block welded, seems to be holding and I believe I can remove the lower arms and install my sleeve hitch attached to upper pivot...

Looks good.The weld on the block should hold up just fine as most of the force it gets is located to the lower lift arms and the center link area.If it does become a problem you can always go to a local steel shop and get a 1/2 to 3/4 steel block and use the other as a templete and drill out the mounting holes and rockshaft hole to the sizes needed.

Yeah, I figured it only had to withstand the force required to lift the implement being used as like you said the lower arms withstand tall the force required to use the implement. I'll know for sure when I hook up my single bottom plow...
