I have the lower arm pins, the lift bar and center link all on the tractor.  Were there when It came home.  Need:

Length of the lower arms;

length of the two lift arms; 

Distance from the front ball center to the lift arm hole;

Standard Attachment width for Cat. "O" 3 point;

 

Doubt that the parts would be available anywhere so plan to fab up my own.  Any one out there have those two measurements please?

Most all Cat 0 were 20" across, but I set my implements at 19".

Thanks Kenny.  My first shot a this size 3 point.  Now I know how much bend I need in the lower arms.  Looking at going with oversize holes rather than the ball ends.  Not finding much for ball end parts in that size.

Most of the 3pt parts are still available from MTD,I think the draft links are discontinued., I do know were there are a couple of NOS 3pt's on the shelf, don't know what your looking to spend for original.

MTD Prices are ridiculously high.  Like $440 for a hydraulic control valve.  It is a working tractor and could care less about being original.  My local welding and machine shop can build about anything I need a lot cheaper than buying ready made.  Shipping makes a good price a bad deal real fast.  Thanks for the info and I do get there email from time to time with their "specials".

It's 17" from pivot point to pivot point on the lower arms.
Lift link is 8-1/2" plus adjustment.
Moldboard plow is 19" minimum width.
Arms will spread to 29"
Lift link arms are 5-1/2"
Lift link arms are 15-1/2" apart

If You need more dimensions, just ask.

Thanks a bunch Rock farmer.  That gives me everything I need to get them built right.  Going to get the ball ends for the lower arms.  Thinking of putting three holes in the lower arms for the lift link attachment points.  Front for more leverage and the back for more lifting height. About 2" apart.  Also going to weld a hook on the end of the lower arms for the chain to hook on to.  See these features on some after market 3 point systems so steeling their ideas to some extent.

Your welcome!
The factory put welded on hooks for the restrictor chains in the front.
I've added eye bolts to the rear. Just haven't gotten around to fitting the chains yet.
