:welcome: to GTTalk,
I'm not a Bolens guy, but do you mean Sleeve hitch? Or is this something different?

Not all Bolens hitches will work on all tractors. When Some of the Bolens Guys see this, they will be able to tell you at least the xref as to what model tractors will work with the 1054. Then we can find a pic in the manuals almost certainly.

I'm moving this into the Bolens Forum for a while to see who sees it there.

The hitch assembly that was used with a dirt plow on a tubeframe Bolens is also called a sleeve hitch. Many of them were made by Brinly.
