Thanks, Todd. I think I am going to have to shave the bushings at the tractor end of the lower lift bars. They won't fit any off the areas I have to hook them up. I hate to do this to 'original equipment'. These bars will mainly be used to get everything else set up and 'if' I get some Sears 3-point implements. Otherwise, I will make new lower lifts from some 3/8" bar stock and go for full Cat0. Then to find some Cat0 implements. I would like to keep everything as original as possible, other than paint.

Since the last posting here, I have given all this much thought. I think I have a way to get all this to work, except for the actual lift mechanism. Might end up going to an electric actuator. I have studied MH81's pics in post 40 and hope to make a similar plate for my tractor, only widen it all out for true Cat0. Won't know until I try it. First up will be to get the lower links attached outside the rear instead of through the slots Sears provided. Stay tuned.
