I want to make a 3 point hitch for my 78 and 84 sears gt18s. I was interested in some of you guys set ups, so I can get some ideas on how I want to do mine. Also if anyone has a picture of the original sears one that would be great, I will probably make mine a power lifted one though. The one I put on my dynamark I used two old air convertible Jacks from a chevy impala they are small and work great . They are the ones that lifted the convertible roof. Open to all ideas thanks guys

Here is a newer style sleeve hitch bottom setup that I adapted to my original hitch, I can easily swap back to my old arms for my Sears attachments.

Here is an original set-up on a David Bradley .

I have a later model sears now and the main difference is the mount is a one piece plate -rather than a 2 piece w/ a bottom bracket .

I will likely be setting this one up soon .

Don't know if this helps , but I tried.

Thanks! I have the bracket but not the left/right link arms for my hitch so I might have to make some. Do the link arms bear the full brunt of the tongue weight where they have that bend in them?

I would imagine some. The do have weight on them when lifting.

 The bend, I think, is more for helping to lock the hitch in the upright position.
