Haven't been on here much lately, between work and family stuff there just hasn't been time for projects. I did manage to finally get a 3 point built for my GT-1650 though. Made it so that I can use standard Cat 0 implements as well as all of the Sears implements I've got. Tested it out pulling gravel out of my yard that I pushed in there this past winter, works really well. Any questions, just ask!

That's quite a worker!
Is that blue piece a Sears hitch?
Seems like the geometry between that and the center link is odd?
How is it for lifting?

Looks good, you may want to put a yield slot in your rods going front to the lift linkage, if it's too solid it may bend something.

That blade is a Sears blade so yes, good eye. The geometry there is pretty odd as the center link is a bit long for the Sears stuff but it actually seems to work just fine. I thought I'd have to make a shorter top link just for the Sears stuff but I may not even bother with it unless it causes issues with my other Sears attachments.

On the 990's (at least the later ones or the White version that I have) it's slotted where the hydraulic ram hooks up underneath the tractor so it's got several inches of float and I set the length on the lift rods so I can't apply any downpressure, I just add weights to the blade as needed.
