Keith, thanks. I'm happy I could loan them to you for this. How did you send them, so I'll have some idea when to expect them?
Maddhorse, I have a set of plans for a JD 3-point, I am not sure what model. I'll have to look them up.

Maddhorse, I just checked the plans. They are for a 300/140 closed frame. May be just what you need. I will check the JD manuals to see if by chance they have already been uploaded to the forum.

George has the files. He is checking to make sure we can put them in the manuals section. If not, I'll see if I can send them to you, they aren't very large files.

Making progress, got the linkage all figured to give 14" of lift 18" behind the rear axle with the ability to lift 600 lbs at that point . That should be enough ? Anyone else out there have a factory Ford or jacobsen 3 point that they could measure the draw bar range of lift ? I don't have any idea what they had.

Keith, Iam wondering why you located the lift arms on such a narrow stance, then used the cone spacers to bring them back out where they should be to start with?, I see a week point there, two things the lift arms will bend, and the cone spacers will loosen up, Id move the lift arms out side the pivot brgs, and you should be fine,.. Now thats just the way I think, cuz I usally giver hell full throttle, If needed,..., Also be sure to use a clevis link on the lift arms, or theres another week link,...Eric
  • Chopperhed said thank you

Well , let's see, linkage issues, to lift it may have been the biggest reason, besides the fact that is where they mount them from the factory...
That is my hitch not what I want to duplicate, that hitch lifts from the ground to almost 20" high.. and has a ton of power, will stand the tractor straight up.
I am duplicating the true factory 3 point here, with only slight differences so folks can use attachments made for there rigs with ease.

Well gave the project a bunch of time yesterday and got a pile of pieces made up. Rockershaft ,took up most of the time it has 6 components to it. I needed to assemble everything on my tractor to be sure everything fits. So far so good . I need to order some pivotbearings for the lower arms today. This most have been a very expensive option as there are a ton of parts to it.

A few pics to show what I've been up too. Now just need to bend up the lower arms and make up links to connect them to the uppers.

Now I see why some extra holes were added. If I am going this route, I will have to have you make the pieces for me. I have no way to get precise enough to make those parts. Looks great! I'm still lurking.
