Does anyone have an upper pivot bar and right side shaft mounting plate for a 36 inch Jac tiller for my 75 LGT 145? I need some dimensions and pictures to build one as I didn't get those pieces when I got the tiller. I'm trying to get this thing geared up in the next few weeks. I would also be interested in buying those pieces if anyone has tem for sale.

It would be the bar on the back of the tractor that the top link of the tiller hooks to. I also need the plate for the right side of the frame that attaches the bar to the tractor. I really didn't know what to look for when I bought the tiller.

OH Ok.....i have the centre bar on mine, but since it is a manual lift, I dont have a plate on the side. My lift bar connects to the lower arm....I may be getting my tractor out of the shed this weekend to till the garden...Will take some pics and measurements

I know which parts you are talking about.

The right side piece I have on there right now is for the 3-point. I have the other one so I can get some measurements. The bar itself is an 1-1/8" dia with a piece of 3/8"? flat welded on for the top link of the tiller to attach to. I'll look around for some different pics.

Those are the pieces alright. Actually I'm keeping my eyes open for the upper assembly for the 3pt hitch as well. I'm not in any panic for the 3pt stuff, but I'd like to get or fab the tiller pieces soon. Can you get me a LxW of the 3/8 piece that goes on the center bar? Thanks for the pics. Hard to find good clear ones on the net sometimes.

I'll see what I can do today, but it will be evening before I can post it. I'll see if I can find the original RH side piece, not sure where it's at right now. I shipped the RH piece to skyrydr2 (Keith) last spring so he could make a clone of it. He may be able to make you one of those!

 Right on. Thanks. I touched base with Keith a while back about getting a complete upper assembly. I'll probably  go that way eventually. I'm hoping to get a couple of pieces made here to get me started. I wish I had of known what I was looking at last summer when I bought the tiller.

I got measurements of that bar off the shaft. It is 3/8" thick, 1-3/4" tall, and about 5-3/4" out from the C/L of the 1-1/8" shaft. There is a slot at the end for the bolt on the tiller frame to slide into & a hole for a pin further in that matches the one in the tiller frame.

Thanks Kenny. I can sketch something up with those dimensions and some of the pictures on the site. . Looking on the Ford Jacobsen forum as well to see what's laying around in the dark corners of the web.

Have you tried the sponsors here? They might have something!

I just happened to have one of my parts tractors in the garage stripping what I needed for one of my other units, so I took a few pictures of it for you.

Thanks. Any chance you could take a few measurements on the plate for me? I need to know how big the plate is and where the holes are located in relation to the edges. I gotta ask, don't suppose you want to sell those? Thanks for the pics.
