Is that the old style lower three point hookup for the lower drawbar arms? The early 3 points had separate pieces for the top and bottom linkage. Newer style had a plate that carried both the upper and lower mounting points.

That looks like the stop bracket for the electric PTO to keep it from spinning. I could be wrong after a second look.

It does look like a S/G bracket, but the end holes are pretty large. 

It also looks like the lower 3 pt arm bar for the older DB's, buuuuttt, I don't think they were painted black and that one doesn't look like a repaint. Also, my lower 3pt arm bracket on my DB already had the pins welded in it so.....I dunno.

Got any measurements of it? Width? Height? Hole sizes?

On another forum it was claimed to be for the models after the Suburbans to mount the 3 pt, it bolted under the tractor and the long pin went thru it. I can see that being correct vs other theories. It isn't offset to be a DB version. It came with the newest style 3 pt.
