I have been looking for the dimensions for the lift arm for the sleeve hitch on a Massey Ferguson 12 hydro. It is different form the lift arm on the Massey 10's. It has a bend in it to go over the hydro transmission.

Sorry Clay, If I had a sleeve hitch for my MF 12H I would be out in the garage right now getting the dimensions for you. I am sure someone here will be able to get them for you.

Clay, are you talking about the rod that goes from the lift cams to the lift arm at the rear? It has a bend in it to gain clearance past the tranny.

I will be up near a couple of MF12's tomorrow. Let me know what all measurements you need.

Looking through a MF brochure, I noticed that angle iron over the pin.

I've never seen that anywhere before. Does anyone actually have that?

Round, fits over the tube loosely.

 

I'll post some pictures later.

I'm going to be making a sleeve hitch this week and have been thinking there needed to be something like that.  My implements are too narrow for the bolts to make contact, so I've been shoveing a flat crowbar between to tighten them up.

I made 1 so far. I have some 12 gauge sheet (.100" thick) that I plan to make a couple more from.

 

I use a hole saw to make the hole just bigger than the tube, Will.

Has anyone else ever had problems with their hitch twisting? We made one for Ryan and periodically have to bend it back into shape because the the center arm bends up with the weight of the plow and a good bump or two.

The metal is the right thickness, it just sags eventually and his plow drags when "up"
Lots of divots.

We made some changes this winter so I hope it fixes the problem, but it no longer looks OEM.

You are bending what appears to be 7/16 thick steel?  WOW!!  I' surprised the rod from the rear rock shaft to the hand lever isn't bending out straight first!
