Yes, it will work.  The Simplicity sleeve hitch tube was taller than Brinly's sleeve hitch and attachment yoke's.  So, any Simplicity sleeve hitch implements will fit a Brinly style sleeve hitch without issue.  There will be a little gap, so you may need a longer than normal pin.  Here's that disc with the taller Simplcity sleeve hitch.  Using a typical sleeve hitch you would see about a half inch of the pin where it passes through the hitch.

Maybe it is. The steel plate is pretty wide. I dont have anywhere to hook a chain up to. Is that a problem?20170923_145851.jpg

The problem you're going to have is that Simplicity hitch on the disc is narrow.  On a Simplicity hitch with chain the lift arm/chain limit the implement swinging side to side.  When you lift the implement it will swing and eventually bang into something causing bends and breaks.

 

You can keep it from doing that by putting a tether chain (or rope) on each side attached back near the pivot point on the tractor hitch.  Then you'll be in business.
