Sounds like you've had a look at some of the prices being asked in local listings, I don't have the info but good luck on that, I'd like to see what you come up with..

York Rake is still in business if you want to go that route.

This is an older model that I bought on an auction in '09:

After restoration:

Mine also has the optional swing-down blade. ~~ Lowell

Yes, I was doing some work with it recently. Mine is for a 3pt so I don't know how much it would help but I will try to take pics of the pivot

Yeah, the prices of the ones I've seen listed new or used are scary... nothing around here local on Craigs List or Ebay,,, think I might check a few of the local mower shops that the old timers have around .....

There is a sleeve hitch and lift made for the T70. If you can find one of those then you can use any implement made for a sleeve hitch.

Maybe offer a finders fee at the local scrap yard? Get a picture of what you want and offer a few $ to the guy who saves you one.
