Is there a substitute other than the factory adjustable side link for our 3 point hitches? Also, where could I get one, E-bay? Thanks

Try looking here for something. I came across this some time back. Do you have TSC close by? They may have something that would work.

I built some once. Used rectangle tubeing for the lower link, cutting off one small side to make U-shape. Steiners or maybe others have just the ball in Cat O size that is used in ends of arms. Use that same ball, same as PK and weld on two rod studs to it's side, just like they did. Thinking I tack welde big nut on that and used 5/8" threaded rod then to screw thru it and down to U-shaped Link?? Can't seem to recall for sure. Had to make some flat stock welded to a nut for handles at top to adjust. Maybe I have picture still??

Good ideas in that post, GL! Thanks for sharing, I had no idea what the set up looked like.
