Yeah, 4 lengths of lower links, all the tire sizes and positions 'can' complicate things. I learned to like the idea of a chain for a top link, or behind it to the back of the mower. That really helps on rough terrain. And with a 30... an over running clutch is a good idea...
Instead of us just guessing here, you should take pictures of what you have to deal with, then we can help you spend lots of money! Go get your camera Mr Bill!!!!

Your right I never mow with out an over running clutch - and because I did a lot of land clearing in MA. I always use a slip clutch (even on my rototiller & finish mowers. My case had an Eagle hitch (the width was non adjustable which made it hard to use implements of different with pins on the lower arms) The pic is of my home made arms,been using them for 20 some odd years now. No left - right sway problems. My lift never moves when I raise it so the height never changes (it sat once when I was moving for 3months with my 1500 lb. counter weight up and never moved).

I posted this in 2 posts because I didn't want to confuse the Case with the Ferguson. Remember I have never used the Ferguson yet - this will be my first time. I always use a chain somewhere so the mower can ride between the lower arms and the tail wheel, yet raise it to clear an object.

(Side note Just looked out my window 6 deer eating a late breakfast :-) love them.)

Correct me when I am wrong - I am under the understanding that the lift arms on the Fergy will tend to drop after I raise them? if so then I would like to suspend them from up near the top link some where. The little chains beside the PTO don't look like they are must for controlling the sway of the lower arms. I have a pin on the left axle that would do fine for a sway stop (wish I had one on both sides then 2 chains would be great. Maybe another project.

Tony what I have for extras are (see picture) #1&2 I think there were to hold the draw bar stationary? #3 may be a sway link for the left lower link ? other wise on the tractor I have just a top link and 2 lower bars & the little chains that hook between the lower link and the lower bars. Like I said B4 I wish there was a pin on the right axle -then I couls use 2 stay chains.

We'll let other guys look at this cool pile of stuff and chime in... but yeah, looks like #1&2 you don't want on a bushog. #3 on either side it fits is all you need. One should be fine. If the over run fits the 30's smaller pto shaft... just try it out. If you bind up on anthills and high spots, dips and gullies- you'll have to losen or play with the top link, I don't ? suspend? my hogs, I let them skate the ground...as I think they were designed to do, not a nice lawn you don't want scarred, but out in the rough. I'd say you are fixed enough to start putting it all together... just don't go 4 wheelin' with it just yet!

Tony I agree on the "skating" except my back field is like Alcatraz -a rock pile. I always mowed close for my customers unless there was stumps or rock. But here I have already broke a blade so I mow higher than I would like to in some areas. As far as a single sway bar - I would prefer 2 as it is easy to put a lot of pressure on the hog in a turn when in a rocky area. However I will probably try it for at least one mowing.
I may have a left bracket (used) on order to be shipped tomorrow. And thanks to Tom Bowman I have the larger shaft (darn and I just put seals in my older small shaft) Also I found in a box left with the tractor an adaptor for putting the large ORC on the smaller shaft. My old faithful Ford 909 budh hog had a slip clutch. I have 3 bush hogs now an d today when I went up to get the arms from the pile of gray matter I got on top of the bushog out there to see id the gear box was splined or round. Surprise !! I noticed a tag on the bush hog "Ferguson" Boy what a heavy killer it is. Later this summer I gotta bring it down and check it out -may be fun to fix up to go with my Fergy when we go out huuntin WEMEN "CUMON Jake lets go"
