By 'quick hitch' do you mean a Sleeve Hitch?

OK, here's a PDF that will give you all of the dimentions of the sleeve hitch.

It was done by a guy that built his own.

well It took about 5 hours to make it looks good I used a stick welder to weld it together and I used an old craftsman drill press from the 50s. I just have to weld the nuts on to it.I am proud of myself what do you guys think.HPIM1840.jpg
