Wasnt sure where this project fits into the site, but heres where i put it.

Saturday we decided the install a Sear type 3pt on the back of my sons model 71 cub. Basically we took a later model top part and mated it with a earlier style arm and bottom mount. Nothing on the tractor was hurt, as we used holes found in place. The top part had to be modified some what to be able to catch the holes i needed, and the bottom mount only need to holes drilled in the proper places. I will have extend the 3rd arms mounting place to get it above the lift shaft, as the cub rear is flat instead of slanted like the Sears units.

This project was done to enable us to use the same equipment with both brands of tractors.

Good way not to have to buy two of each piece of equipment. I'll bet Sears made a bundle of money by not having a regular Cat. 0 three point. It all boils down to cubic $$$$$$$$.

Got the top link part made and welded in place today. After raising it up i find that the grond clearance for the attachment is not enough. Will have to raise the lower link point of the arms up close to the center line of the rear axil. Also im thinking this same mount is to far forward and need to be in line with the cross shaft in the upper parts. Ill have to get some more pictures after refiguring what parts i need to make and how not to damage any of the orginal things.

Put a set of ag tires from a walk-behind on it also today, now it looks tough. More later on.............

Put the center link bracket lower than the rocker shaft amd you will get more lift at the tail end .

Neat idea. With the stance of the Cub, did you have to allow some offset to get the plow where it needs to be?
