Hope this is the proper place for this,,??

 

  I'm looking for some lift rods for my bolens 1477 ..

 

  The ones I have for my dozer blade are similar to heim joints,, But they do not have the swivel on the ends..  their solid  fixed..

 

   I'm looking for a threaded rod,, going into a right angle,, (In my case,, a 5/8" threaded rod, with a heim looking end,  fixed ,, and a 5/8" pin coming out the side at a 90 degree angle ) ..

 

 These will be my lift rods, going to the the lift arms on my 3 pt hitch to the hydro lift ..

 

  Hope I explained this correctly..  I wish I could take a photo of mine ,, But they are not here to photo..

 

                                                                            Thank  you            sodi...

Power King hitches show up on epay a lot. They are simple and could be adapted to other tractors. I have MADE arms from Flat stock, heavy like 1/2" x 1-1/2 or so and gotten the balls from Steiner I think it was for Cat 0, or you can find Cat 1 size much easier any farm store and had them welded to MY metal bars at each end. Have to be careful not to warp the outer parts of the balls or may lock up. That is why I had mine done by pro welder. I made some for a PK and worked great, looked stock. You can also go long enough to bend to shape if yours aren't straight type, that is not hard either. The lift links I made thick Rectangular tube with nuts welded on  for threaded rod to lift. Cut off the short side on the tube to drill hole and slip over the arms below, pin on. The upper end I again used the link balls and made just like a PK has, but one could use diff link ends like used for steering and such to connect to whatever arms you have to lift with. There are aftermarket places that make 3 pt parts, not cheap, but well made. Have had MTD style parts from them. Some welder fabricator that was linked on here from the MTD forums. They make parts for all the brands and generic too. Google search?

Go to TSC and look in the gate hardware. They stock a gate hinge with the pins coming out sideways instead of a hole.

I am using top links from Agri Supply to make arms for my Agway. Get a couple cat.0 top links and make a longer "Barell" and lift pin hole

Go to a farm supply store and look for a gate hinge that made to bolt on to a post... They're actually the other half of the part you have shown. They are a threaded eye with a pin pressed into the eye.  I've used them to make parts for 3 point hitches
