I had the same problem with my ford lgt 165 . U can't find hitches anywhere so u will have to fab. One . I have searched for years to find help with mine and I finially did a couple months ago. Norman at isavetractors.com tore apart his tractor just to send me extremely detailed pics of the three point hitch. Contact him he is extremely helpful and he also sales engine parts and more for these ford tractors. Hope I helped.

It's hard to find anything on these tractors. I checked NH and the pic for the 3-point is missing. It's like they are hiding the info!

That tractor needs the frame braced for 3 point hitch. They break where the trans-axle front mounting bolts attach. They will also wallow out the bolt holes holding the rear trans-axle mounts to the frame just behind the front mounting bolts. A sleeve hitch keeps the stress off the frame because the lift is cushioned by the hydraulic cylinder.
