With my kit you need the entire set up for a 3 point hitch , what you have now will work fine with a factory tiller and sleeve hitch. unless you have Cat."0" 3 point hitch implements you really would not need this kit .
But if you do want one it would run you $535.00 plus shipping.
You would need to remove all your existing rear brackets (6 3/8" bolts) and install mine in its place. No need to remove your pto shaft as it will work with my kit just fine.

I don't have any plans per say, just CNC programs and really don't want to give up this info as it has taken many hours to get it correct and it is very easy to mess things up too.

Fair enough. You've spent a lot of time making sure things work well. CNC programs wouldn't be much good to your average tractor buff anyway. I'm still planning on hitting you up for an upper assembly at some point.

Thats the upper shaft and mounting plate on the right I need for my tiller. The mounting bracket looks to flat stock with the appropriate holes drilled.

In firemang's picture from May 16th that is.
I built an upper tiller linkage last year. I have a drawing with measurements that someone sent me for the plate. I can send it to you. I just had a welding shop do the bar. Cost me 20 bucks. I bought a bronze bushing that rides on the tiller shaft as well as I couldn;t get one from Ford to press into the plate.

A few more shots of the linkages

The last one is of the pto drive, this configuration has 2 speeds, 2000 rpm in low and 3150 in high .
This makes the tiller hum, and does it make nice soil, but it really makes the engine work if your burrying the tiller.
This is the PTO drive I am wanting to find.

I am in the process of building a pull behind mower from a 60" JD belly mower deck that is shaft driven. If I could find one of these rear PTO's I could attach a shaft and run it like a brush hog, at least that is my plan.

( Evil scientists laugh inserted here) well that pto setup is completely totally unquestionably custom!! It has a custom made shaft that you see sticking out and a very custom made drive unit that mounts as if it was the mower deck.

What you need: first you need that right angle drive.... It came from a GL 12 Bolens from late 70s early 80s??
Then you need to build a sub frame for a jack shaft to qet from the engine pto to the gear box with 2 belts.
Next : find a plate to space and hold the gearbox to the tractors existing hitch.
The output shaft for that is actually the input side of the box so you need to save The drive flange that was on it so you can mount it to a prop shaft.( I made an entirely new shaft that has the standard 1" 15 tooth spline)
Make up yoyr jackshaft with the proper sized pulleys and your good to go.

I'm interested, Keith. Do you have a price in mind at this point?

Units will cost $555.00 plus shipping and will be painted your choice of Factory Blue , White or Black and will come with adjustable third link.

I can get them for a decent price so I thought it would better to include them . The stores all want $40 plus for them IF your lucky enough to even find them... :thumbs:

How much for just a set of the upper arms and the two top link brackets, no outside brackets, linkages or shafts? Are those two horizontal shafts running though the brackets stainless?

Nothing on that upper assembly will cross with any factory brackets unfortunately. I had to revamp the entire arrangement to accommodate the outboard rocker shaft arms. The original arms are on the insides of the side brackets. This made the lower arms all floppy and would flip over sideways pulling a bottom plow. I hated it!! So I re thought the entire assembly and made an entirely different unit that works as the factory does. Bolts on the same too. Even works with the factory pto.

I have a couple extra pto brackets so if I foul one up no big deal. Are you only interested in selling whole kits or something?
