I am wanting to start this, but work and weather is killing me. Right now it is 97° with NO wind. Just too hot to warm metal to bend it. Can't seem to get time early morning to start on this.

Do you have a vision or a drawing?
Is it like the Sears style only heavier?

Here's a drawing of the uprights. The cross piece will be 3"X2"X1/4" angle.

I will use 3/8" X 2" strap for this. Should be heavy enough!

I reworked the drawing a bit and included the cross piece. Took out all the dimensions, but they are basically the same.

Looks great Kenny.
Don't think you'll bend it with any GT.

I don't have the skills to build one some I'm planning this winter to purchase https://heavyhitch.c...itcase-weights/  .  They also sell the adapter for the sleeve hitch to go with it.  https://heavyhitch.c.../3-point-hitch/

the 2 holes, to left and right of pin location, are they for nut/ bolt tightening device? to take sway out of attachment?

Yes, that is what they are.

These are Allen heads, and most are bolts with a lock jam nut to hold it in place.

Yepper! Gotta have that for a sleeve hitch! I'll use 1/2" bolts. Just didn't add that detail in.

There is a plate that pins on the hitch along with the implement that those bolts put pressure on to keep the implement from swinging.

 

You don't use it for every implement though.  For instance you don't use it with the moldboard plow as it needs to be able to swing a bit.

Kenny , I would try and move the mounting point for the sleeve attachment as close to the tractor as I could to give you better weight distribution and less "rudder" control from the implement. :thumbs:

Just a FYI. Bush Hog sold a sleeve hitch piece to allow the 3pt A-frame to be used as a sleeve hitch as well. My good friend Jack happened to have one that he allowed me to add to my collection,image.jpg image.jpg
