I see some bigger Speedex models had a sort of 3pt on them. Was really just solid widened arms, mounted about like the standard hitches. Then they have openings on top of arm ends to kinda "scoop" up the implement and you put in bolts or pins to hold I guess. Top links have a mount that goes by the seat. Anyone on here have that? Seems you would not be able to adjust tilt with this kind. Not sure then if there was an adapter to use pull or sleeve hitch type implements or just what. Is there any manual on the use of the hitches? Would like to see one if so. Later units DO have a bigger more standard hitch on them, but these old ones seem odd.
3Pts Really Good On These?

Those older tractors had more of a 2-point setup. I don't have one of those, so I can't give much detail. However....
Go here and look at the parts breakdown for the tractors. You'll get an idea of the hitch arrangement.
Still looking around for something more specific that might detail the attachment of a plough.

Think it is the 1630 or similar. Has the T92 trans, standard big gear axle, but this wide splayed hitch that goes up/down like the smaller models, just is wider and then has the mounts for the 3rd link above. Guess it could be a 2-point if such a thing? I like a drawbar and A-frame on my other tractors and could put one on this tractor If I wanted to then. Plus hook up easier/quicker on attachments.

Paul, Wow, those are hard to look at! Haven't seen that One for many models. I have several simpler ones with more pix for same models, not all together like that. I'ld have to blow them up and study to help me.. Anyway, none of those drawbars are same. Hoping the drawbar I got coming from you is what I'm talking about. Think off bigger models than the S series.
Went and looked at Mans and the 1631 here has the lift I'm looking at on noted tractor. One shown here is hydraulic lift tho, not sure if one I'm looking at is that or NOT???? Have to look closer at it, I guess.
Once more to correct my post. It is a 1630, has the 3pt, but can see the BIg manual lift lever like most others on left. Tried to save a picture, see if it works here now.

The bracket you and I have been dealing on is the lower bracket that goes on the 1632. The difference between it and my the one on my 1631 is: the 1632's bracket has a place for the hydraulic lift to attach.

Here is a picture of my 1631. As you'll see, it IS a 3-point set-up with adjustable top link:

Paul, so one I'm buying has place for 3rd link on top of it's arch then? Was wondering where/how they did that connection. Can't wait to get it, see what I can modify to fit my other tractors or whatever. Lots of systems are similar for the whole Speedex line and can be inter-changed. We Hope anyway. I can modify things.

Here is the "weldment" you and I are dealing on. If it isn't what you really want, just let me know. There is another separate piece that the top link would attach to. I don't have a spare one of those:

We're still good on purchase. Can you get a shot of that upper link mount, just to see if something I can make or ??? Was it bolted to This part or somewhere else?
Posted December 30, 2013 - 02:02 PM
Here you go. Let me know if you need any others. As you can see, the 1631 differs a lot in this area from the 1632..... "armstrong" vs. hydraulic lift..

Thanks for pix! Looks like I will need to make an arch then. Spring assist too, interesting!
Assuming springs hook to each side of seat post? I have son plow springs that mite work for that.
