I had an opportunity to purchase a lightly used plow today, so I took it!  However, rather than the more familiar sleeve hitch, this one seems to have a single "tang" that must have slid into a receiving socket or sleeve on the tractor.  Does anyone have some pictures or measurements so I can fabricate something rather than modifying the plow?

Sounds like a slot hitch to me.
Early JD, Wheel Horse, some Jakes had them (maybe others?)

It was the predecessor to the sleeve hitch. I'm sure an adapter could be fabbed.

Here is the WH hitch on the back of the tractor. Later, they had an adapter to sleeve' then just a sleeve hitch.

Don't know the progression for Jacobson.

Hmm....I see I forgot to mention that it has a sticker which clearly says "Jacobsen", therefore I came to the Ford/Jacobsen forum to ask the question.

 

My bad.

No, I understood that you thought it was a Jake plow. Just that the closest thing I've experienced was WH slot hitches. Sorry if the information was not what you were needing.

Jacobsen borrowed the slot hitch mount from WH instead of inventing a new style hitch, that way Jac. owners could use WH and Allied Attachments already on the market on their Jac. GT's.

No, the information is good, I just didn't want you trying to figure out every manufacturer that ever made a slot hitch and trying to post a picture for me  :rolling: .  

 

I looked in the manuals area, and the only hitch pictured was something similar to the Brinly style.  There is a printed document that details how to connect the lift link to the slot hitch, but no picture of the slot hitch.  Guess I'll build another hitch.  But the price was right and it was on my way to the grocery store.  Plus, the guy called about 10 minutes before I was going to the store, so I figure I'm supposed to have it.  :dancingbanana:  :dancingbanana:

There is a thread here somewhere about a 63 Jac. and it has a photo of the slot hitch on it. I'm trying to find it for you.

Excellent!  Thanks Brian!  I doubt I'll be able to fab up something exactly like that, but it gives me an idea about how close things are mounted to the rear of the tractor, also about centering and such.

Howard, I can't find a photo of it, but I think that Dad's MM has one on it and I can get you some measurements off of it tomorrow. It appears to be 2 pieces of plate and a piece of bar stock.

Thanks again guys!  If I'd known this one was going to fall into my lap, I could have made a different hitch for my Massey while I was on spring break.  Well, with any luck, I'll finish my studying for my certification and will have more time by late September.  Right now it's mostly, Get up, study, break for a meal, study, break for another meal, and then study till 9 or 10!
