Congrats. Hard to find item for sure. It's almost like you got the box of
Cracker Jacks, for the prize inside. Shouldn't take long now to get that
lift working on the 16.

I started this thread to find out info on the 3pt hitch for 14s and 16.

I'm trying to put together a 3 point and I'm in need of some info.
Looking for a really good Picture and Specs of the factory 3point lift cylinder used on the 14, 16.

What is the Cylinders outer diam, and Stroke?


A lot of people went to a lot of trouble to help with answers, info, pictures and advice. Without this help I never would of gotten as far as I did, still plan on finishing the modified 3pt lift and will update this thread but for now an original lift is going on my MF16.

I have gotten lucky and found a original 3pt on a running parts tractor, came complete minus the top link. It was seized at the rockshaft but after some penetrating oil and jumping on a pipe wrench with a 4ft length of pipe on it it is now free and working. Both height adjusters and all the ball end joints (don't know the proper name) are seized also.

I wanted to post measurements of what I've got here.

Cylinder dia = 2- 1/4"
Cylinder shaft dia = 5/8"
Cylinder stroke = 4"

Cylinder Pin to Pin
Retracted = 8- 3/4"
Extended = 12- 3/4"
Lift arm total Travel measured at the end attachment pins = 13"

I wish I was good enough on the computer to make drawings as I sure this could be duplicated and made.

Doug, a few measurements and pics are all that is needed to draw something up!

"Both height adjusters and all the ball end joints (don't know the proper name) are seized also."



Mine where the same. Get them off the machine, and into a big vise at a comfortable
height. Crank up the torches, and keep putting oil to it. You'll probably need a triangulated
file to fix those threads too.
