I think you would be further off building a 3pt for it. I don't think a sleeve would be to bad to make up for one, other then making a lift link connection. The sleeve hitch part could be made from ideas from other pictures and measurements from other ones and mounting angle pieces to attach it to on the back of the tractor. Then make a lift link to tie in to the middle lift cylinder.

That explains it. I thought you wanted to put a "Sleeve Hitch" on it, you want to put a receiver tube on it.

I like the second one. They both look like a nice units.

Had me fooled, too. I also like the second one, very neat looking installation.

The other option too is to get a a-frame Brinly adapter. Then you could use it for the brinly style single bottom plows, hitch ball adapters and any other style implements that use the brinly sleeve hitch hook up. I think I have a partial pic of mine. Found it, I attached it to the post.
