The guy told me he found this cleaning out an old house.  I think it has never been installed, it even has the bolts still in a bag, as well as the mouse eaten box.  The number is 917-60658 and it appears to be around 1966.  Does everything appear to be there?  From the parts list it looks complete, but if anybody spots something missing, I would love to know.  

 

 

Thanks

Tim

One extra piece, maybe.
The blue... Not sure what that's from.
As for year, I believe you're looking 66-67. Was told once that the 68-70 had another bend in the handle.
The previous years were straighter (for the DB fenders) from what I understand.

Nice find, what are you mounting it on?

I have two David Bradley's, a 59 and the light blue 62 special.  If it would be close to correct, I may put it on one of them.  I really don't want to modify it, it has survived too long in it's shape for me not to get it on the correct tractor.

yes maybe one more part which would be the lower arm mount. theres enough there to do a slant back rear end right now. that number is one of the last ones used for the old DB line, and should fit a custom. There were about 4 or 5 different 3pts made from 58 -65, each one has a different or more bending in the handle to clear the fenders.

Great score on that! Looks complete to me also. That Blue piece is extra for sure. Enjoy!

If you need info on making the lower hitch point, I made one for my 725... Assuming it's the same? Please verify before assuming.

The blue piece was throw in there, it looks like the rod that goes through frame for lower arms to mount to, although it looks likes too small diameter.

Looks small to me also. But the new rod is there.

I missed seeing the new one in the pic, so I wonder what that was from?
