Does anyone have a Brinly hitch on a RAM or possibly the dimensions of one, would like to make one for my '59.   

Thanks.

So, some experimenting may be in order, think it can be done.

I am sure my RAM has a rear hitch on it the raises and lowers with the lever.  Been a while sense I saw it.  Can check in the morning and get some pics posted.  If it is what your after can get measurements later.

I have the lift for Bolens attachments, I just need to make a piece so I can use my Brinly attachments, post some pics anyway as it may be useful.  BTW, what year is your RAM?

Not sure on the year.  I had a card with all the info on it buy cannot locate it now.  Was with all the others card I made up for each tractor I have.  The lift arm is off on mine at this time as it was used to pull a small wagon and cart around the yard.  Wanted the lift lever ahead out of the way.

On this one the lower part of the hitch swivels to  provide two different hook up levels.  The top part swings horizontally with the lift lever.  There are two heavy flat irons with a hole near the end below the swivel part.  Probably part of the hitch of some kind but never went into it that far.  I do not have any attachments for the tractor either.  Mine is more of a novelty for the granddaughter to drive around when her Mom can be along side to take control if necessary.  Hope this helps you out with your project.

Mine is the same way, I think I could easily make a hoop to attach at the bottom and a lift from the top part similar to a sleeve hitch on a Cub Cadet or simplicity.
