Hi all, since I'm in the fabricating mode I fabricated a sleeve hitch adapter for the Economy / PK's with the lift draw bar (I fabricated one for the 3 pt hitches a couple of yrs ago and I use it all the time) so I wanted one my other two tractors with the lift draw bar, got it done today and its going to work good its in the paint room primed and tomorrow it'll get paint.

Yep, it looks good!  Are familier with the PK made 3pt adapter that mounts on a drawbar?  Has two ridgid arms and even the upper link connection is all on the one plane and bolts to drawbar like you have.  BUT, guess that is NOT what you were making.

Hi gl no this is a sleeve hitch for the many sleeve hitch implements I have that can now be used with Old 49 and my 73 PK if I want. Here's a couple of pics of sleeve hitch attachments Simplicity calls it a single point hitch.
