I have several implements that have a sleeve/clevis hitch mount, but do not have any horses with the sleeve/clevis hitch, so I have been collecting/preparing to build an adapter.

 

I have attached photos of my adapter, but please refrain from laughing out loud at my welds!

I can weld pretty (won't hold) or wooly looking (holds tight) so I go for strength!!

That ought to work! Good idea to use the paint a filler for the welds! :thumbs:

Nice, but what, or how is going on to what ever. Sorry for asking. I just don't understand. But it looks great. Wish I could weld that good. I have sleeve hitches on some of my tractors. I can see what it is , but what does it go on. Again sorry for the question. Noel

Thank you very much, now I understand. The attachments on the 1/2 ton are nice. The last picture of the plow is the same as a plow I have , but it is a ford plow made by brinley. I always wondered how it hooked up because none of my fords have that slotted hitch. Thanks so much for the information. Noel

Looking at the two plows , one with slot hitch and one with sleeve hitch. The sleeve hitch has the angle on it and the slot hitch looks like no angle in it. Why would that be ?? Noel

Here's a link to a good thread about Ford/Jac slot hitches with links to other threads in it also.

KC, You did a very nice job on your Slot hitch adapter, looks just like the Brinley adapter I have.

Thanks so much, Texas Deere and Horse. Now I understand even better. Never owned a Wheel Horse. So I figure the ford plow I have, with the slotted hitch, is 1970 or older I think. My other plow is a sleeve hitch type.

The slot hitch has some angle to it. It is difficult to see the angle from the angle the pictire was taken.

The slot hitch has the same amount of angle in it as the Brinly sleeve hitch has. It keep the plow level when the tractor is in the furrow.
