Started looking up the parts for a scaled down version of the one I posted. Have the boom & the cross, need to find the pieces I put aside last time I was looking into doing this so I can round it all up. I did make the pins for the arms tonight.

Mh81, the boom you are going to build is different of what I had in mind. I do not have a 3PH on my Ford. I was looking at attaching at the sleeve hitch mounts on the axle and the upper Tiller attachment point, at an angle of about 60 degrees. Length of pole is unknown. I would use an electric winch over a pulley at the top. This way, lifted object will be close to rear of tractor. Hopefully, not to much front counter weight would be needed. I will try to get pics of the rear of my tractor today. My boom would be static and not move up/down.

Went out and staged a photo shoot. The Ford forgot its make-up this morning, must have been too early. A little grouchy too. Wants lots more beauty sleep. (Needs it to)
Back to the subject. I only have one pole erected, toying with the idea of two angling toward center line of tractor from outside edges of sleeve hitch(only there to show location). Upper Tiller mount will serve as an upper mount location. Elec. winch will have to be above fender assy.
Take a look see and pick it to death. Just remember, NO MORE than 200 lbs. Probably 100+/- most of the time.

Kenny, when you lift the sleeve hitch, does the tiller assembly move also?

If so, could you make it 3 point & build an adapt plate?

Sorry this is hand drawn & crude, but doing it at work & just getting the idea out.

MH81, no the upper tiller attach does not move with the sleeve hitch, it is floating. The pic below show how the tiller attaches, item 1 is the lower in place of the sleeve hitch and is what raises/lowers. Item 25 is the upper mount, floating. The lift arm connects to the tiller & sleeve on the right side near the tire. If I could find another part to install on the right side of the shaft for the upper tiller mount that has the second hole for the three point, I could make it work. I will have to search for some more pics to explain it better. Found what I needed. Second picture is of the 3Ph, items circled are what replaces #12(what #25 hooks to) in first pic for a 3PH. #12 is an 1 1/8" shaft.
Hope this makes sense to you, as I think my brain cells need a recharge.

First George, Where's your Penguin???

Second did a little more, only had about an hour, but I had the stuff laid out, so that was half the battle.

Here's some pics of the mock up. The A frame will have a set of spacers & a pivot pin in the "U" as the angle changes as it goes up & down. I also need to make a stop of some kind for the "down" as the handle goes too far back around & That shoulder just can't do it sometimes. :D Lots more to Fine Tune, but progress made at least. Where the hook is, I hung my 200 lbs and the front wheels got light, but were still touching. more than I plan on putting on it by a long shot.

MH81, looks like you get to make a video soon. I like it.
Nutndun, I don't have a video camera. Plus I'll need to get materials.
Played with my drawing program and came up with my gin pole idea. With a little luck, I might get it to rotate down some using the lift. Hope this shows up good enough.scan0002.jpg
