You bet. Haven't forgot, just seems like everything else gets in the way. I'm hopeing the price of steel comes down a little so I can get some bids soon. But like a lot of other stuff at least I'm this close.

I made this last winter, the only problem is the tractor is still apart. I took it apart to restore it but have since aquired a B110 and a Johnson front end loader so it took the back burner. When I made my lift handle set up I tried to make it similar to stock ( didn't have one to copy ). One of the things I did was made it sit at the same angles as the left hand lever. So when it's all the way forward it measures the same distance from the edge of the hood sideways and the angle forward are the same.

This is an exact duplicate to an orriginale. The problem was dealing with the strange angles. I have located the rubber grips used and are going to have to custom make the thumb handle, but it's comeing along.

Dave put me on the list for one also. I've got a few surplus left-hand lifts from parted out tractor I'm playing with adapting for right-hand use but one of yours would be better! Larry

Larry, I tried that. Didn't like the outcome. Once I got an orriginal and saw the complex angles involved I new I needed a better plan. As soon as I get a moment I'll get some bids on the material and then maybe some realisic prices. Till then I don't want to guese and hurt anyones feelings by haveing to change it later. Thanks for the interest, Dave.
