Can you add a photo of what you have?
Wheel Horse offered a slot hitch, a sleeve (clevis) hitch, and a straight tongue type for pulling a trailer.
I know the straight hitch will work on the tractor at the same time as a slot hitch.
This is a slot hitch:
This is a clevis (also called a sleeve) hitch:

You want to get the hitch as close to the rear axle as possible and you want it if possible to be adjustable ! this will give you the best hitch height fulcrum as possible( height of hit will not change as much as you start to lift the front to get max traction on rears)

It has the slot hitch with a eye bolt placed in the top, it also supports the wheelie bar. Thank's for the help

This is one that a guy in Michigan mades and sells (it really is very heavy duty, here on my tractor):
A standard 2" receiver gives you a lot more variety of uses and barely sticks out when not in use.
PM me if you want his address/contact.
And here's another style of one a person made for himself on a 520:
