I found this on ebay its'supposed to be off a 300-400 series Allis Chalmers They say it will fit ona 3400 or 7000 series but both my 3410S and my 7016H have a bigger hole in the one side of the hitch... Will this work?? if so I take it I need additional parts to make it work??

So what is it you found. Sounds like it might be a rear lift attachment, all I know about them new running board gismo's is the 3314 I mostly have, one side of the rear lift had a collared type hole on one end, not sure of the reason for it. MPH

Maybe i missing the whole point here. Do you just need replacement to your rear lift? Or didn't you ever have one? The novice that i am thought this part was standard equipment.

I don't know for sure but I don't think it was a standard option...But about 99% of all tractors I have seen have them...

I could be wrong but I think all of the foot draggers had them standard, then when the RBT's came about they became an option. Most RBT's I've seen and all three that I own didn't have rear lift on them. I seem to recall a post about a tiller from a 300/400 series not working on another tractor because the rear lift had a different diameter hole and was unique to 300/400 series. I don't think it will work. Hope this helps. Chris

I didn't think it would fit but in the Ebay ad it says it will fit 3300, 3400, 7000, and 7100 Series along with 700 or 900 series... [url]http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2372516950&category=50377[/url]

The 300/400 hitch uses a 1-1/8" rod while all the others use a 1" rod in the hitch. Also the depth of the hole on the 300/400 hitch is shorter (3-3/4" vs 5") than the others. Exception: the last 400's made had the same 1" lift hitch as all the others. I have one of these hitches for the 300/400 series myself, actually have the whole rear hitch assembly. Unless you have the rototiller for 300/400 series with the fatter/shorter hitch shaft, it isn't worth the effort to make it work on a 700/3400/7000 tractor. I would gladly trade what I have for the rear hitch, and cable for a 700/3000/7000/7100 series rear hitch.

Levi..... Almost but not quite, the 3300 series used a lift rod and still retained the counter balanced front/rear lifts found on the earlier tractors. The cable lift was initiated with the 3400 series tractors, along with the cone clutch and other "Improvements"........... BTW, there is a rear mounting shaft that does not have the "lift" part attached. It's nothing more than a length of steel rod with the collars on it mounted where the rear lift will go. What good does that do, you ask?? Well, you can mount a Vac system or the front/rear ball hitch on the shaft and you don't need the lift for that........ I have a 3310 V and several other tractors that came with the shaft instead of the rear lift.........

I have had a couple of these tractors.... Always wondered why they were like that.....

Hello, I'm the one listing this on ebay. It was my understanding that this hitch would fit on the rear end of any 300/400 tractor and 3300 through 7100 tractor. The rod would either have to be modified or a cable routed. I will modify my ebay add to say that the shaft is shorter and larger, but if rod is modified, it should still work for sleeve hitch, rear weight holder and maybe other implement or if you had a 300 series tiller. Does that sound correct? Thanks for the answers to Bunky's questions. John

That is not an OEM 3314. The center PTO engagement lever is unique to the 3300 series because it was the first series to run the lever through the frame but still retained the old belt/idler clutch to engage the PTO. Could it be that someone replaced a hood with one that had 3314 decals?
