Buggyman, on my 1614, mine it adjusted at 16" right now for my plow. The center "body" section is 10". Should be the same for yours.

PK's are little longer than most. You can buy one in TSC stores, but may be a little short for some things, like plow settings. I ended up buying one, removing the ends, cut it in half, added same size tube in middle. cleaned up joints, painted and ends back in. Longer and just as strong. I have also taken older ones with one end bad, and cut two of them off at one end with damaged threads say and welded those two good ends back together. About same repair as above, just ONE joint then. If you don't have anyting used now, guess that won't be working, ha! Try that link above, get a longer one if you see one. I hadn't seen one before.

I checked today and bought the only top link they had. As mentioned above it may be a tad short for some things. I think that the idea of cutting it in half and welding a piece in sounds like a quick and easy fix it I find that it does now work out ok. I got a plow today so after making me a 3 point for it will see how it all works out.
Thanks for the help guys.
