I almost finished the 3pt I need to cut off the orginal tab that was used for the white GT tractor lift linkage as it's hitting the back plate and depending how much more movement I get out of mine it may be done or I may need to cut off my linkage qnd tilt it in more towards the tractor, it's trial and error right now to get the correct amount of lift and downwards motion. I do have the correct movement tho to make it go up and down. I plan to cut another peice of 1/4 steel and weld it to the rockshaft I only did 1 for testing. 142yohh.jpg

That's looking pretty darn good so far, it is very important to the linkage correct, from what I see your putting a lot of stress on the linkage that is connected to the rocker shaft. You need to remember that all the weight carried is going to be pushing on that point with a mechanical advantage. It's always better to pull with linkage rather than push in that situation. A hydraulic cylinder pushing on it would be fine, but not a 1/4" or 3/8" x1" bar stock, unless it is very short .

Once I get the correct length qnd angle figured out I'm going to weld on another bracket just like how it was on the right side qnd with q couple passes of 1/8 7018 rod ad 115 amps will make it unbreakable as it sits I was jumping on it last night and it didn't break with just half a weld on the one

Can anyone help with the install of my 42" single stage blower I've never seen one like mine where the belt runs from the pto straight down to a gear box with a pulley on the blower and has a long bar that slides together for the lift mech. It has a idler belt tensioner and I can't figure out how it mounts even with the manual I'll post pictures tonight

As you can see by the picture it's not a YT blower as those rods on the side are how you lift it and the pulley to drive the auger is positioned right below the pto assembly

Sense I can't find another rear deck hanger that the chains are welded to and the oem used aluminum I'm going to build one out of steel soon to make it bullet proof it looks extremely basic and I have the oem one to spec all the parts I need to cut qnd weld. I'll post pictures along the way. This weekend I'll try to upload a video of the 3pt working, I hope to have it all sorted out and fished welded. I'll paint it down the road to make it look oem

I finally completed the 3pt hitch. Welded it on to the rear tractor plate also welded on a bottom center link sense I cut mine off when I started all this. It's painted qnd works great. Now it's on to figuring out the snowblower this weekend.

Been wanting one of these for my LGT18H also. Your installation looks good. Have you been able to use it yet? Just curious how it lifts since it really wasn't designed for that function. Also interested in any other attachments or mods you have done. I've got a number of old Fords but this was my favorite.

Jay, you asked me about a rear pto setup I did, are you looking for the one down low and in the center above the trailer hitch ?

That unit is completely custom, even the right angle gearbox is custom! If you are a machinist by trade, I can give you all the nitty gritty to make it up, but if not... Oooh, aahhh ,, this will be a serious challenge on your part. Let me know , as it could work on your Tractor if you have some serious fabbing skills.

Yeah the bottom one. I just plan to use a right angle gearbox with a pulley on the bottom and weld a plate to hold it all. And run a belt from the front to back qnd if needed ad a pulley mid way. I'm a decent welder fab guy. But I don't do machining
