Ok, I just got a blade on the front of my HT23 and now I'm wanting to get a 3-pt set up on it.

 

I already have a 3-pt hitch, I got it on trade, I dug up a water line with my backhoe and he gave me this 3-pt. I already had a cylinder, I also have another 1 way cylinder but it is a lot smaller bore so I don't know if it will be enough? I'm going to build this 3-pt on a plate and then bolt it on the rear end. Would this be strong enough if I just bolt this to the rear end? or should I build my mount to hang on the existing 3-pt mounts on the axle and then still have it bolt on top??? The most I'm going to lift is a 4' box blade with about 300lbs of wheel weights on it. But I don't want to do any damage to the rear end.

 

I'm going to start building this weekend and I'll see how far I get.

I'm not sure, but I would look in the Large Frame service Manual.  It's very possible that it's in there.

From what I found, this tractor should have between 550 to 800 PSI.

Thanks for the link
