I replied to your PM, please let me know of further issues. As for any larger manuals, we will need to wait for George.

:yelclap:

Ding, ding, the light just came on. I was looking at the photos and the drawings of the sleeve hitch. trying to figure out what the small piece with the pipe on it went. I got it. going to gather the materials on Monday then fabricate it, may be a Little premature until it is running better , but since I like making things, it will be inspiration to get things rolling

also have been toying with making a fiberglass dash mold, to reproduce (with the suggested reinforcements. if there was a interest. (used to do fiberglass work as a auto body man years ago)

Sleeve hitches are quite handy in my opinion, and I would love to have a few more mounted on my tractors. The only bad thing about most of my tractors is most are rare and never came with sleeve so each one will be custom lol. Luckily most all work the same way lol. So good luck on your sleeve hitch.

Sleeve hitches separate a lawn mower from a Garden Tractor and that difference makes then very fun and useful tools.

Being addicted to GTs separates you from your money :laughingteeth:

I could not agree more. I have been separated from thousands of dollars already lol. Take my advice, not get to more than about 4 GTs and you will have money to play with in restoration, implements, and other stuff, and then more time to enjoy them. Because with a large collection (like me, I have over 20 tractors of all sizes) you don't have time to get them all out in a weekend, they don't all run, and you are always tinkering on one of them, and it is always the one you liked the most at the time of failure. It's a great hobby, but a great way to get in deep.

2 on each side? They would be the bolts that hold the angle iron upright attachments to the rear plate. Those holes exist on your tractor already. If there are bolts there, take a picture of the back end and post it.

Are you talking about the 2 bolts on the sleeve hitch itself (either side of the vertical tube the implement mounts to)? If so those two bolts are used to snug up implements such as rear blades to keep them from wobbling around during use.

Don't worry, we were all new with GTs once, and when we learn, we never forget to help others in their thirst for knowledge.
