I am restoring a 416S tractor. I hope to have photos soon. The rear mechanical hitch is a tube type called a one point. I have seen sleeve hitches but never one like this. How is it used and is there any equipment out there?

 

Thank you.

There is equipment available. Any single point of any manufacture will fit once you have the adapters, it is universal.

This is the best photo I have at the present.

That tube is just Allis Chalmers' way of making a 3 point hitch back then. Allis and Simplicity rear attachments will work back there.

with the sleeve adapter any single point attachemnt can be attached.   Granted early cultivators and spring tooth harrows (Ist photo) and tiller needed no adapter.  The original sleeve hitch adapters were trianglar shaped and lifting was accomplished with a chain. Great for the moldboard plow but not so much for other attachments that need to be rigid.  The newer hitch can be made rigid by tightening the jamb screws on the adapter, the attachment is lifted and controlled by a single point,   thus they are called a single point hitch.
