I was running late and just had to try it last night, had a bachelor party to go to. And its raining today...... dang it!

Hi Jim, how much of a kit would you like ? A complete one is a bolt on, and a partial is going to be just the uppers and rocker shaft. And if you want to do it all, I can even do a DIY kit that will need to be welded , just a box of parts and a set of instructions ?
Let me know what you would like?

Ok, I have a few little details to tidy up and then I can post a price for them. Also what version tractor early or late (open side or closed)?

Still fiddling with the fine details as I want this thing as close to perfect as possible. Right now I'm messing with side stabilizer links . Also 2 different versions of Lower arms , ones with out ball swivels and with them , I used pressed in versions on mine and they are expensive! Stay tuned pics soon.

Never got to it last night, had to cover up some of the garden for the frost we got this am.. hopefully I can get things tidyed up tonight. I need a few little bits from the hardware store and I think it might be all. Then it will be testing to see how all the ajudtment features work and if they are even necessary .

Impressive to say the least ! all the extra holes are totally usable and make sizable differences . the side stabilizers work out nice, I just need to get to the hardware store and get some rugged ones but the ones I used held up.
I plowed a bit in my garden and it worked awesome!

ROTFLMAO, I just clicked that link, it was not recorded like that , seems Photobucket rotated it automatically to fit a wide screen.....oh well, it works anyway, and the prototyping is about over. Time to make the donuts!
Just so everyone knows, my lower arms on my stuff have 3/4" ball ends at the rear, as I have sleeves if needed, anything sold will be 5/8" unless requested .

Now for a plug and play unit ready for pto $525.00
Less pto bracket, $495.00

Kit price: upper ***'y only: $250.00 (has to be assembled and welded and no hardware)

Lower arms and vertical link centers: $125.00
As stated earlier, the kits will need to be welded and all hardware purchased , what you will get is plates with all the holes and bushings in place and instructions on how to assemble. The lower arms will be bent and balls installed ,they too will require welding of the standoff.
The turn key sets will be all test fit and tested and primed before shipping so you know it will work and fit correctly.
