Are the Briney lift rods still available for my tube frame.??

I'm making my own hitch and all is going well there.. But the diagram is a bit confusing on the lift rod..

Is the part of the rod that attatches to the hitch upright,,, just a free floating sleeve,,, with cotter-pin adjustments.??? The Briney instruction manual,, It looks more like a threaded rod on the tractor side with a nut..Just in front of the up-right...

I might be better off just buying one if available...

Would someone be able to show me a pic of one to get a better idea of what they look like..?? ( Thanks ) I have the prints to make one but they are a little vague in the pics...Attached File  3825-Brinly sleeve hitch parts list and instruction manual.pdf   289.06KB   33 downloads

The instructions for building the sleeve hitch has very good instrucions for building the lift rod.  There are no nuts or threads on it.  A sleeve is welded overe the rod in the correct position and a few holes drilled in the attachment end for adjustment.  They are no longer available unless you can find a used one some place.  I made my lift rod in less than an hour.  Good luck.

Thanks  Cheiffan and  Husky...

 

I bought the  5/8 rod  and the only pipe I could get over it was   3/4 "   It seems like it would be a  very sloppy fit..  I a'm wondering if I could ream out a 1/2' iron pipe to be a bit tighter,,especially on the welded piece... I don't want to take away to much of it's strength thou. Is there other pipe I should be using.???

On Ryan's sleeve hitch on his Massey, (I know this is the Bolens forums, but I just can't help myself) we used a high pressure hydraulic line piece from a friend. It had walls about 1/2" thick.
We did have to drill it thru to get the sleeve hitch pin in, but it won't ever get pulled open.

Most pipe, especially if cut with a pipe cutter has a ridge on the inside that needs to be removed.  I used standard gas pipe on mine and it fit nice and snug.  Had to use a round file on the inside of the pipe a few times to get that ridge cut out.
