What are the bars going from the lift housing arms to the lower part of the tractor? I've never seen that over here. Eason

Pick up hitch. Note there is a "hook" instead of a draw bar like we are used to.

Eason they are for the Pick Up Hitch (PUH). You have a Choice of a clevis or a hook. I will get some photos and post them as soon as I can.

It needs left rear side window. Some repairs to the doors. New front grill. New roof. Rewiring and associated components. Cab Heater /blower needs sorting.

C pillars of cab need some repairs due to rust.

Will probably need a new clutch and the TA has been deleted. Not sure if it feasible to repair and replace that.

I need to reroute the loader controls. I will probably The them off the auxiliary valves with a stop valve and use the auxiliary hydraulic levers. As the spools are inside the cab and the pipes are routed out through the removed right front side window. Get a very cold left leg at the moment. And the right dashboard side panel is removed.

I will post more pictures soon. Especially of the PUH.

As promised some photos of the pickup hitch.

Up and down with both the hook and clevis in use.

And the reversible draw bar out of the frame so you can see it.

This is first photo bucket attempt so bear with me :D

The PUH is lifted up and down with the arms by the extra lift rods on the side. When you lift the arms to there upper point the weight is taken off the locking hooks at each side of the hitch frame so they can be released by the lever in the cab
