This pile of scrap has a purpose. Any guesses?

I started working on my Sears three point to sleeve hitch adapter today. Got a lot done only to find out that the plans I printed out over a year ago have an error... It's OK tho I will fix it, have a plan in place.

My goal was to build one of these

I didnt really care what it looked like. Old steel and no paint was fine, just wanted to be able to use a couple of implements on my sears.

In the plans, it tells you how to make all the parts... Dimensions, degree angles, etc... Except I did not see the fact that the person made their own arms... 15 inch, instead of the usual 18... Crap.

So, I am either going to make an extension top link or add 3-4 inches on to the top of the adapter.

It does look like it'll work, just need to tweak a little.

Looks great Alan. I think you could weld another piece of the frame on there to extend it to the top link and no one would make fun of you, nor would it look bad.

That'll do the trick. Looks plenty strong. Like Cassey said, add to the adaptor.

Nice welds Alan, and cuts with the torch!! Great job!

 

 Now, I bet  that plow is heavy to lift ?  I would have tried to get it as close to the tractor as possible with out interference . this way it would have less affect on the tractor, may act as a rudder because it is so far out the back .. It may also be hard to gage your depth too?

That's cool, Alan. I'm sure you will figure out something for the top link. I just hope it isn't too far back and hard to lift. If I remember correctly, the Sears 3-point plow is shorter than the sleeve hitch one.

Looks like a nice weekend project.. It looks like it is heavy enough to last a long time.

Looks good :thumbs:   Would it be much trouble to make a longer top link ?   I need to make a longer top link for my PK for when I use the disc for hilling

Suggestion on the top link. If you can find one at TSC that has a longer center section, could your original ends be screwed into it and give you a longer top link? Just a thought. Or buy one with a short center and lengthen that. At least I hope the threads are the same!

My plan is to make a temporary one this week and then see how it works, then decide how to extend.

This is a pic for sears pt number 917.253182 sleeve hitch adapter.

Note the arms, they did make shorter ones for this... I don't want to swap arms every time I want to use the box blade, so I get to do a little trial and error.

Good luck with it, Alan! Have you got a helper spring on the lift? You might need something if it's further back.
