hitches

Recommended Posts

My Big Ten has what I think is a sleeve or tube hitch. It's what was on it when I got it. Is this better than a three point hitch? Or is it just a manufacturer's way to pressure us into buying their product by limiting what will fit? Are there conversion kits and does it really make any difference anyway?

What it sounds like you have is just the regular standard simplicity hitch for simplicity brand implements. There were no three point hitches offered for these tractors however a sleeve hitch was later made available and is what all brinly attachments require. They can still be obtained from simplicity but aren't real cheap. The main thing you would but from simplicity would be the clevis. The hardware you should buy somewhere else much cheaper. I wouldn't call it a way of limiting you to simplicity attachments because at the time it was designed the brinly sleeve hitches weren't common if they even existed. -Chris

As far as I'm concerned, Allis / Simplicity has one heck of of good design, and used OEM attachments are readily available at fair prices. If you use 3 point attachments, you'll have all sorts of other problems making them work.

      folowing  this from a link at the downloads.  I just rescued an AC 920 with the lambodini diesel. I can' t download  yet .  Where did you find the PDF copy you posted. . I would like to figure out how to adjust the injection pump. 
      I assume it's a bosche, correct

        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
