Well in exchange for a few GT parts a friend fabbed up a 3 point to mount on my 446. He has never built one and used the plans from the Yahoo group. Everything is good except for one thing. The plans show the lower cylinder mount for either a 4" or 3". I have a belly lift cylinder which is 3". Well it comes up short. The lower tabs are mounted exactly where the plans are but even with a 4" cylinder they would still be too low. In order for them to work the cylinder body would need about 3" more to reach. I was wondering if anyone has built one. I'm looking for some measurements. I need the lift link lengths. Also some pics of the hitch if anyone can post them. Thanks in advance.

Well answered one question. My lift cylinder is only a 2" stroke. I've heard where a WH D series cylinder is used. Anyone have any experience with that? There is one on ebay right now just wondering if I should pull the trigger on it.
