Try it and see if it does the job. If so, then no more work is needed. If you are raising and lowering it by hand the leverage of the lift linkage (chains) may be an issue.

Well it sort of works. It doesnt lift high enough, and doesnt go low enough lol. The lever moves quite a distance before I get any movement out the back of it. I think once I get the slop out of it, it will work great.

You really don't need down pressure if implements are adjusted right, plus down pressure is almost pointless on small GT's, as they are so light that when you apply down pressure, you just lose traction right when you need it most. And like's been said, move the chains back further on the lower hitch. This will give higher & lower movement.
