616 3 PT Modification

Recommended Posts

I bought this AC 616 last summer and it didn't have a 3 pt hitch. So I modified the regular deck lift hitch to a regular- true 3 pt hitch. I bought the arms from another club member. It is something I will probably not do again. 8 hours of work, cutting and welding burnt fingers and I caught my hat on fire in the process(long story). However the end result is I got what I wanted with the satisfaction. Since I am going to repaint the tractor in the spring I didn't bother painting the modification. :D

I've been wondering about doing the same thing for my sunstar since the 3-point set up was $500.00 new and now can't be found. Thanks for the pictures gives me something to think about for a winter project next year. Hope your head wasn't in that hat.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
