Thanks Guys. I was going to go and visit him and see the tractor in person today, but I didn't.

These little old tractors had a unique hitch set-up. I stumbled onto the pieces in the Princess Auto store, of all places. I try not to lurk around in that store much, because even though they have some really good ideas for tools, the 'really good' doesn't get into the tools themselves. This hitch is made in India where they still make those first little Massey-Fergusons. It seems to be made well, so I'm confident about this hitch. Anyhow, I sanded some of the arms, primed them and painted them.

Here is the new hitch mounted on the tractor. I guessed how long to make the braces and made them too long. Next spring I'll loosen up the bolts and shorten them.

Looks good Mac! My Pa in laws 8N has that type of bracing. I've thought about fixing up a set for my IH since I've converted it to Ford arms. It wants to run to one side, a brace or two like that would keep it aligned.
