Sleeve Hitch ???????

Recommended Posts

I built a sleeve hitch.. and it works fine in my plow, but I picked up Cultivator and the Sleeve hitch is too tall to fit into the Coupler... Is there 2 different size sleeve hitches???

Bunky, the design you used is what I first uploaded a couple of years ago. It has been floating around ever since. Since then, I uploaded a design based on OEM specs. But, very few people have used it (?). [img]http://home.att.net/~herb.niewender/onepointhitch-oem.jpg[/img]

Just a bit of side info. here, the bolts with full length threads are called "shoulder bolts" while the ones with partial threads are "machine bolts". I guess the idea is that if you're bolting parts onto a machine, why spend the extra money threading the whole length of the bolt. Along a similar line, if you are drilling a hole to tap threads into for a bolt or screw you will use a "tap drill". If you want the fastener to pass through cleanly you need a "body drill". Most of the better drill sets I've seen have a table of this information right on the case....

Kirk The 3 cutting styles of taps are Bottoming, Plug & Taper Bottoming Are used on blind holes 1 1/2 thread Lead chamfer Plug are used on thru holes 3-4 thread Leading chamfer Taper are used to start threads 6-9 thread Leading chamfer The process of grinding this chamfer is called plugging with .001 to .005 relief from cutting edge to heel of the land with thread relief of . All can be used for thru holes. I belive Sholder bolts only have threads part way and machine bolts have full length threads For bolts that pass through you use a drill the size of the body. For bolts that thread in you use a drill = to the root dia.plus 1/4 of the thread depth. this chart is on most drill boxes as tap drill size and are different for fine and course threads of the same bolt size.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
