I hadn't paid the weights much attention till he posted how much they weighed each. Bet it breaks up the soil good.


The patch I plowed this year hadn't been plowed for over 25 years(corn/hayfield at one time). There was a LOT of sod that cement blocks on the disc wouldn't touch, so on went the heavy weight. It's a workout, but not really all that bad.

Thanks to tweidman, I have purchased the needed parts for a 3-point hitch for the GTV/16. Once they arrive and I find time to start installing this, I will start a new thread. My biggest concern is how the handle will clear the seat pan on the GTV. I may need some help for the hole location for the handle piece. And that will depend on which handle I use. Stay tuned.

Thanks, David. Since I no longer have to build from scratch, I will file this to check my installation once parts arrive.

Got the 3-point parts from tweidman today. Thanks, Todd. Got most of it in the E-bath already. I now have a complete hitch with two different handle assy's. Soon, it will be time to start the installation. I will probably paint this charcoal grey, as the GTV/16 will be charcoal grey and black. With the Onan engine and the 26 X 12 meats on it, should be a real work horse.

So I now have a nearly complete 917.25178 3-point hitch. I will have to drill mounting holes for the lift handle to bolt on. That may be fun to figure out where they go.

I need to take a pic of my rear plate. Maybe someone can give the measurements for the location of the holes I will need.

Sure Kenny, tell me how you want it measured. From ground up?

BTW, the parts numbered (blur) and (squiggle) on that diagram, {the two lift links, one adjustable}, you will want to watch weight on them. They have a bend to provide over center lock for the handle. Too much weight can straighten that bend some and cause the lift to not stay up. They're not fragile, just metal. Now if they had made them outta adamantium...

I'll get a pic today of my plate and maybe we can figure out something from it. May use the top of the trailer hitch to go up from. I will put some measurements on the pic so we are in the same ball park. It will probably be later today before I can post the pic. This is not a rush. Too many other things ahead of getting this together.

Got a couple pics of the rear plate the 3-point will bolt to. If you can measure up from the bend at the trailer hitch, that would be great. I got some of the parts painted today. Get some pics soon. Handle assy. is bathing at the moment.

Cross measurements should be centered. If not give them also. Thanks!

Kenny, if you need better, different, etc... please let me know.

BTW, if the lift you have is the older one with just the top 2 bolts, I have one of those. The c-c should be the same as the top bolts in the pics. I can ck that if you need.

Looks to be about 8 1/2" up from the trailer hitch. These should work fine. I do have the two bolt, but I have a PO modded one that is attached to a piece of 6" channel iron. I'll just have to see which comes closest to clearing the fender pan.

The hitch has been run thru the E-bath and cleaned and painted ( except for the original handle assy. It may not be used, so will wait to put the final coats on it.) The Modded handle is bathing, will come out today. Oops, forgot to do the channel iron for the modded hitch. I'll get some pics of everything later on. Sure cleaned up nice and looks great to me. All threaded parts are working and have a heavy coat of anti-seize.
Once I get it set up, I want to look at possibly using a linear actuator instead of the manual lift. I also have a couple pieces of 3/8"X2" bar I can use to make it a true Cat0. Just have to get the original set up installed first to make the new pieces. It will be easier to design them once everything is set up.

Okay, here's some more pics. First is before naturally. Then some of the two handles and their differences.

The original Sears handle has the black rust reformer on it. Just pulled the other from the e-bath and letting it dry before it gets a coat put on it.

Kenny, that's looking really good. What kind of paint are you using?

Rattle can Rustoleum. I spray with the rust reformer first. I don't know how good it is (rust reformer), but figure it can't hurt. I sanded the hood of the Cub and sprayed some on it last summer as a test bed. Nothing over it and no sign of rust yet. Need to finish that one of these days.
