Hi folks. Would any one out there be able to give me the length of the lift link used on the integral hitch for the John Deere 200 series garden tractors as well as where the pin holes are located on each end and diameter of the holes? I lost mine in a move and would like to get the hitch back on the tractor so I would like to fabricate my own. I know there is a blue print on here for one but that is the one for the 300 series.

Thank you very much for the replies however that is not the part that I am in need of. I have that one. I may have called it the wrong thing so I am posting the image from the JD parts catalogue here for the visual. I need part number 8 from the diagram. Hope this helps.

look like deere make several different that should work
checked the length of mine the No 7 the holes are around 11 1/4" apart
the other one No 21-23 the holes are around 12" apart

also if you got a tiller the for is about the same length, but the holes are different sizes

Thanks for the reply. It looks like No. 7 is the piece I need. Should not be to hard to make something up that will work.

Thanks again.

Tmo, I don't have a JD, but these drawings can be inspiration for other builds. Thanks for posting them.

Could you also make one of those with 2 thread on clevis ends and threaded rod. The only problem I see is the odd diameter of the holes.

Couldn't those holes be taken out to a larger diameter? I wonder why they made them so odd.

if you have a 31 tiller it uses a larger pin to hook to the tiller and but uses the same size pin to hook to the lift as the hitch
the lift rod or lift link are about the same length between the holes for the tiller and hitch

you can drill the hitch hole to the same size that the tiller has
that way you can use same on both the tiller and hitch
just in case you loose one or the other (lift rod / lift link)

Holes are for a 3/8 diameter pin, so you need a slightly larger hole for clearance. If you had the complete assembly except for the link, you could bore out those holes and the mating holes to fit any pin you want, as long as you don't jeopardize the integrity of part.
