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.
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.

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.

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.

Hope this makes sense to you, as I think my brain cells need a recharge.

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. 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.

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.
