The pto shaft should be another fun project, all this is going on my older LGT125 so I will be sure it works perfect. Now all I need to do is find a Ford tiller. I would love to find another bottom plow so I can make a double bottom unit .

Made linkage that goes from the aux.lift point to the 3point hitch, and roughed out the lower lift arms. Had to make a for to be able to bend them nicely in my hydraulic press( wood splitter) stay tuned for pics of it and all the parts mounted to the tractor. But it is dependant on the weather, supposed to rain all weekend.....

Looking good, Keith! That lift bar coming from the cylinder is not stock, what did you use? Lower arm look to be 3/8" bar stock. Keep the pics coming.

Found some pieces to mock up the lower arms and figure out roughly what I want to do for the length of the vertical links.

Almost done, just a few things left, then it will be time to tear down the old booger and give it a thorough going through and fresh paint.

That helps a lot. The parts view leaves a lot to the imagination. Yours is looking mighty fine.

How you can put this all together so fast is beyond me, but I'm diggin' it. But, since you have already put one 3-pt. together, this one is rather simple. Neat links!

Only a few bits left to get set up , it goes up and down nicely . I am going to try it out pulling a few trees and then pulling the bottom plow and see how it handles it.
