Today has been fairly lucky for me.
For starters I brought home a rear hitch plate for a Cub Cadet with a three point a sleeve hitch. I traded mine to a guy whose tractor didn't have hydraulics but Cub Cadet had installed the rear hitch plate needed for rear lift on his tractor at the factory. It has the cut out for the lift bar, and the longer sides for the draw pins and to brace up the transaxle.
After it got mounted to the frame I needed two brackets to connect it to the transaxle. Which keeps the transaxle from trying to twist out of the frame.
When looking through the scrap pile I found two pieces with holes drilled in the correct place. All I did was cut them to length and install.
I also found two pieces of angle that would work for making the upper link bracket for the third member on the hitch. They had holes in the correct place also. I had to weld them together and I'll get the holes in the side drilled sometime in the next few days.
I had to take the wife out for supper and afterwards stopped by the old Big R store which got sold and is now closing. Everything is on sale . I got the last two draw pins they had for a category 0 hitch very cheap. The two pins were $1.50 total instead of $3.99 each.
Today everything was falling into place.
