Also scored this mystery sleeve hitch at the Jacktown Swap meet for $25. It is 12" wide outside to outside of the mounting holes. Figured I would adapt it to a Springfield, but still would be good to know what it fits.

I was going to say that it looks like a Brinley hitch for a Cub Cadet, but you would know better than I! I just thought I remembered seeing a picture of one with the beveled corners like that on a Cub.

You know Casey, by my tally, you've got more in gas than you do in parts so far LOL>

LOL I know Steve. Also, the guy had Cub Cadet sleeve hitches so I knew it wasn't one.

Casey, look to the right of center (standing behind) on the 45 degree area. Look for the remnants of a rectangular sticker.
With that color, it could be an original Brinly built for whatever the experts say it fits.
I have seen 2 original Brinly hitches and they were both that color and had the sticker.

I tried zooming in on your picture, but there was this odd shaped shadow on the picture.

Don't remember seeing a sticker, the guy didn't knew what it fit so I would assume no markings. As for the shadow blame George, it was my XL GTtalk shirt LOL.

My hitch has no identification on it what so ever. So now I want to make it fit a Springfield and I just have that upright arm in the way.... anyone care if I hack the arm off and weld on my own? I will give 48 hours for anyone to object, but if you object, please offer an alternative solution to chopping off the arm..

My Ford has an upright. Could this be an early Jacobsen?

Looks just like the one we have for the Bolens tube frames but I am sure some of the other brands used the same lift rod type setup.

I will save you the effort Casey and give you $20 for it :D

Not sure, but I think he wanted to use it. The upright was a problem for him.
