No not worth it. If we had been having this conversation 50 years ago when the tractors were still in work full time it may have been different but these days very few attachments would use that connection point as I said yesterday. Unless you are a perfectionist and want to show the tractor, forget it. Most implements are made to use the Top Link Connection and not the long hinged pin. The top link attachment point is only working when the implement is in the ground, NOT when the implement is above the ground as there is no pressure from the implement to operate the draft control. This is how it is meant to operate so don't think about it anymore..John(UK)

Actually, John, I took a closer look, and the attachment point is fine.

What I was seeing was the original long, hinged pin (it looks original, anyway), that was broken off on one end. (It looks like it seized in the hole/bushing.)

I"ll just (carefully) extract that broken/seized pin, and I should be good to go.

Thanks again.

Wonderful, glad that it is OK. The hinged pin on a TO20/30 or a TE tractor should have a shoulder on the Pin at the opposite end to the Linch in hole. This is to allow a bigger hole on the casting so that you an pull out the Bush through the bottom of the Top Link Rocker, the Hinged Pin on a TO35 or 65 does not have this shoulder, so be aware if you buy a new pin..John(UK)
