Not sure if any of you guys can open the word document I attached, but if you can take a look at the two parts I identify in the pictures.  Got this pic from Kenny, for the stock 3pt hitch.  I'm making the lift arms, my rockshaft and whatnot, but cant get accurate dimensions for the arms that attach the rockshaft to the lift arms and the bracket the 2 triangular looking brackets for the top link.  If any of you guys have these and can take a pic of them with the dimensions on a sheet of paper or cardboard, a drawing, or just the dimensions I'd appreciate it.  Think I figured out a way to make a fairly inexpensive/easy 3pt and am documenting it all, will start a better thread with the pics once I'm all done.  Thanks

I have all this info but am reluctant to give it up, as the factory version as was conceived by Jacobsen is really poor and not very user friendly, but it does work ok. If you look through my thread on it , you will see many different stages of it. I have tested many versions. The latest seems to be the best. It will work with the factory pto too.

I'm interested in the measurements and reference photos of the factory version, would love to put a 3pt on the 145 to show. Finding originals around here is next to impossible.

The spread arm design is almost the same as the factory except it makes the lifting component inline so the arms can be straight and not flip over when using a bottom plow. Also it allows for direct turnbuckle links to stop sway. Very user friendly.

Lift arms on rocker shaft are 9" overall and 7" center to center on the holes and made of 3/8x2" stock. The other center point mounts are not so easy. I found their mounting points and refined them to be more user friendly.

What size piece of flat bar did you use to connect the rockshaft to the deck lift/hitch lift bracket I have pictured here?  How long was it?  How did you connect to the two?  Bolt through a bushing I assume?  Mine was never hooked up and I'm missing this rod so I've never seen how it mounted up, refer to the part thats center in the pic, did it connect to the hole thats below the pivot point or above?

Ok thanks for that.  In your pic with the drawing, curious why there is an elongated hole on drawing "A"?

And I cant tell how you're connected to the rockshaft, is that just a pin with a double race and c clips?

Slot is for "free play or float" in the 3 point. All connection points are shoulder bolts. The one at the 3 point rocker shaft is 5/8" and the one at the lifting rocker shaft is 1/2". Both are just long enough to clear and be tightened but still have smooth free movement..
