I have a "square" hood S24 that the PO replaced the lift arm and handle assy with junk. Can someone here take some detailed pics with measurements so I can properly build/fab/replace my assy? Would be much appreciated.

i need to see pics of yours to tell if the hitch frame is the same as my 69 if so its down and i could remove the unit and take pics and measurments  and you can do the mods on width and length to adapt it to the square hood model . ps does it have a flat piece of stock that is centered on the frame on the top if it does you will have to make a top hoop for it to , this piece is the stop for the hitch . i still don't know how to adjust the rear attachment height so that adjustment must be on the attachment itself :thumbs:

I'll get some pics Saturday. I think that they are all the same. It's been so long since I've seen a "correct" set up that I just can't remember how they look. Seems all the pics that I've found so far are of the wrong side of the tractor.

Did you try that speedex history forum on web?  Have to look up the exact address, but it has lots of pictures and all the manuals for them that can be downloaded. Not much info in the mans, but parts pix at least. You say crude junk is on it. Might be orig, ha!

Try www.speedextractorinformation.org     Note the Org, not com or other.  You can download the manuals from there to print. NOt many pages in them. Can't recall, but might be ones for attachments too that would help. Seems the S series are all on one manual.

critter the hitch part is right but the lift arm is not i will take some pics and do some measurements and post them later on today

And here we go SUNP0068.JPG the lift arm is also the foot rest and and is designed so the intermediate shaft if you can call it that acts as a camlock when in the implement up position , the implements are adjusted not the lift arm and your hitch looks to be the same as mine so the hard part is to decide on the cost difference a well placed ad or to in here and other want ads may net you the two parts you need for less than the steel and fab time if you don't have a fab shop on site and have to farm it out

SUNP0069.JPG SUNP0073.JPG SUNP0077.JPG SUNP0072.JPG SUNP0074.JPG SUNP0076.JPG SUNP0078.JPG

Untill started to draw this out on paper I figured anyone could build this thing and now with 30 or so different measurements and looking at a very tight 90 degree bend and a 45 degree bend that is exactly 90 degrees to the 90 at the foot rest. this is some thing that can be found at shows and online and i would check around before you go into to much time and expence trying to fab one , not to mention the lift arm between the 90 on the foot rest and the 45 on the handgrip goes from 3/4 in to 7/8 in and back to 3/4 in most likely to add strength so it didn't bend under heavy lifting like picking a moldboard plow out of the ground and such . i'm not going to finish the drawing tonight so i will post it later .

the lift arm is 3/4 inch round stock with an area 7/8 inch.

the intermediate shaft is 5/16 thick by 1 1/4 wide and a center to center for the holes of 17 3/4 inches

it's 27 inches from the footrest to the bend for the handle
