Welcome to GTTalk. I'm not sure if there is a set of 3pt. hitch plans on the net anywhere. There is a company making excellent aftermarket hitches - Ruegg is the name of the company. Around 500$. You could also check with some of our site sponsors for a used one or even on Ebay etc.

See Mike, Kenny already got you the plans. Make sure to keep us updated on how the build goes.

 

And Welcome again to GTtalk, post some photos of your JD when you get the chance.

 

BTW, What part of the country are you in, what state?

THe 316 is an open-frame (rear) tractor, like my 318, as I remember. So I think you need the plans from york0060  above. Also, if you don't have them, I have the Operator's and Technical manuals for the 316 scanned in and could send them to you. Also have some attachment manuals scanned in.  Let me know, and looking forward to continuing reports on the 3pt hitch project. Don't need one, but would love one for my 318. Will have to check out those plans from York0060.

He has a 316Kohler -300 closed frame like the 140 models and needs the first one.

I guess I'm showing my ignorance about JD 316s and probably about a lot of other things. Is the operative word here "Kohler" to distinguish closed from open frame?

 

In the attachment charts there are two 316s listed, "316 Tractor (80,001 - 95,000)" and "316 Tractor (285,001 -         )". Is it right to assume the lower serial numbers are the closed frame and the higher serial numbers are the open frame like my 318? Hoping to learn something here. The manuals I have are for the open frame 316.

Harlan, that is correct. JD had 2 different series of the 316, most people refer to the early one as a 316 K or Kohler. And don't feel bad, I have made the same mistake before I learned the difference.
