I assume no model tag anymore?

 

Get a measurement from the top hole to top of plate and also floor to center ot the lift bar as it's laying in that pic.

MH81,i didn't get a measurement but i did pick up another 3 point hitch and along with it a Sears mold board plow at a show this weekend.So i have some comparison pictures.The 3 point hitch that i just picked up appears to me to be an older one and is different then the other one i have.You can see the plate is shorter,has two extra holes,a shorter lift arm and a different top link mounting hole/point. Here are some pictures.

Need to study those on a larger screen. Thanks for the details.

With them laying on their "back" are they the same hgt?

No the plate is taller on the white one.I was kind of amazed at how many differences there is between the two.

Both nice 3 points, there are a lot of differences, aren't there?
BTW, the "top link" on the rusty one is actually a mower deck piece, but hey, whatever works.

Great find, anyways... especially if it works better with your tractor. Oh, and where are the pics of the plow?

I don't have any pics of the plow..YET...lol but i will get some.It's in good shape,same patina as the hitch.I think it is an 8 inch,its smaller then my other Sears plow.I couldn't pass up this plow and 3 point for $30.I am guessing the hitch i just got is mid 60's and the other is mid late 70's for the high hp twin cylinder Suburbans with the gas tank under the seat and i'm guessing it would clear the tank.Either way i will probably put the older hitch with the smaller plow on the Custom 10 and put the bigger hitch and plow on one of my Suburbans.

Take your time shining it up and then setting it up.  An extra 5 minutes with the wire wheel or with the directions will make the process happier.

I completely agree MH. I just stuck it on for pictures. I dont really have any intentions on using it for now. I have a nice 10 plow on the heavier 3 point that is setup already ( it's the one that posted about late this spring that i plowed and disced a big garden with) and i have a 10 plow for the Wheel Horses too.I'm looking for a 3 point 12 inch plow for the 1214 PK.

The early hitches like those on the David Bradley models only had 2 bolts at top, plate was short as they just bolted to rearend. Then when the switched to Roper they elongated plate and had 4 holes but plate was slightly smaller along with handle. Then I think in early to mid 70's the made plate bigger and arm longer due to rear gas tanks/fenders (longer handle) and I think plate was made larger to accommodate the optional electric actuator. They would have one plate for either handle hitch or electric.
I would bet the large white one was possibly black in it's early life.
I have a smaller one from 1968 on my '77 16/6 and works fine.
Man, if that was a 6"plow I would love it, need one to match my DB.
