I made a MF10 or MF12g lift rod (the one that goes to the rear lift) it's 1 1/2" or 2" shorter that the Hydra's lift rod and is straight not bent in the middle. 2 90deg bends, 1 at each end, small hole for hair pin, I think it's 1/2 round steel rod, not hard to do.

The one I made, I used a Hydra rod, cut it at the bend, overlapped the 2 to get the right length, and welded them together.
Sold the tractor that rod was on.

Wish I would have known you needed measurements when I was putting mine on. I could probably get some dimensions for you if you still need them. I have a 10 and a 12 lift rod, both are brand new.

I'm not sure if you still need the measurement? 23.5" center to center. Better late than never?

Pictures of lift kits.
The straight rod is for gear drive tractors.
