Thanks for the pictures. Will it hurt anything to connect a mower as Bob has it there? I don't imagine there is a need for draft control on a mower but is it harmful to do it that way?
What sorts of things are the lower attachment points designed for?
Tony, did that tractor come from the wreck of the Titanic? Pretty rusty lookin'. My bucket of bolts probably doesn't have one that long.

Nearly all Ferguson implements attach to the Top Link connection, only a few special implements use the lower hinged pin. A Post Hole Borer is one, the Trailer Hitch is another and draw-bar stays for the linkage draw-bar, but there are a lot more. It is just a stronger attachment point and was used on the old Grey tractors right from the very early days.
You can safely use the Top Link connection to attach your Ferguson Mower without any problems as it is made to attach at this point. Regarding Draft Control, obviously you don't use it as it is not running in the ground, so you use Position Control if you have a 35 type tractor, which will hold the mower at whatever height you need to set it above the Ground and you move the Draft Lever down to the bottom of the Quadrant out of the way. If you have a 20 or 30 type tractor, then you use the Chain in the center of the mower draw-bar, hooked into the Rack on the Top Link to hold it at the correct height (PTO shaft Level) and lift and lower with the Quadrant Lever as normal.......

Inno,
I have a 1957, TO35, it came with the cross bar hitch just like the one in the picture.

Later we bought a under belly rear hitch for the tractor.

I also use the stabilizer arms that go from the end of the lift arms up to the long pin when i have my seed sower mounted,

it runs off a rubber hose connected to the pto and the seeder must be at the same level all the time, so you do not ruin the drive line hose.

somewhere down the road i have seen a bracket that fits onto that long bolt, the bracket has a connector like the normal top link connection.

If you look up the old fergy post hole digger, the top link of the phd was attached to that long pin not the req top link.

Harry Ferguson and his boys, did not put that long bolt on there for show, I bet there are some dudes out there that know of many other fergy implements that were designed to be top link hitched to that long bolt.
