Started on this project this afternoon. I'm going to have to do some tweaking as I
get to the last few parts.

Yes, trying to copy the original, from what info is posted here in this thread. I think I've got the
top link to long right now. Needs to be shortened at the tranny end I think.

Pictures are still on the walls, you just got to look higher.:smile1:

I got somemore done today on this project. I might have been able to finish things , but
I ran out of acetylene. I'm just going to post up a bunch of pics for reference. Filing out the
square hooles wasn't to bad. I made all the linkage parts longer than my best guess, and added
extra pin locations, so I can tinker with it, to find what settings work best.

Awesome reproduction Will, where the all thread is, is that were the lift arm goes?

Where the all thread is, is an adjustment point, to set the depth.
The lift arm goes on the end of the square shaft inside the right wheel.
Couldn't twist that up because of my acetylene situation

A couple of issues about this lift though. You see that big adjustable wrench laying there under the tractor.
That's how much effort is required to lift that plow. And that's with me standing on the floor. I can't imagine
how tough it's going to be when I'm seated. Maybe I've got some of the linkage points in the wrong spots.
Afterall, this was done from the hip.
Anyone see any adjustments/changes that could be made to lessen the effort required to work this thing?

The other issue is that once you get the implement up, you have to hold it there while driving. Like in the picture.
It's no wonder they didn't sell a whole bunch of these lifts, and they're readily
available. I guess that's why I'm building the second prototype.

Will that looks good. Once you get the long handle on it then it may not be so hard to lift. You'll need to try it with something the same length as the designed lever(handle) to see if it's possible to lift it. You may need to put a gorilla on the back to lift the hitch for you. As an added bonus that will also give you extra traction.:smile1:
