I got some paint on the parts I need for now. I'll do the rest of it when I paint the rest of the tractor. The swivels on the lower arms will get some anti-seize, along with the threads on the links.
This is the lift rod. If you look at the clevis on the left you can see how much float is built into the lift. This equates to a whole bunch at the 3-point or sleeve hitch.
I am going to try something here on the rod between the 2 clevis'. A 3/8" IP will go over this rod. I plan to get a length of that and a sturdy compression spring that fits fairly well. That will take out the 4+" of 'free' float. I plan to leave a 1/2" 'free' float before the compression spring comes into being used. I'll still have some float that way, just not so much. The length of the compression spring will determine the total amount of float. I think this will help with plowing and box blade use.
EDIT: Center link pic is in post #33. Forgot it here!
