rich, i saw your post on the other forum about a 3-point hitch for your 770, i think the Saginaw unit mounts to the axles and i don't think this would be good for the 770.the axle housings are not that hard to break. other 3-point hitches mount where the oliver hitch mounts to the tractor, that's where you should be pulling from, not the axles. I've had a 3-point on my 77 for about 30 years that i got from central tractor, now CT farm and country. they have them for sale and it looks to be the same as the one i have. you can put pins in it for down pressure and will easily lift the rear wheels off the ground, great for post hole diggers, york raking and back blade work. it also works good with a 3-point plow. you can easily pull a 3 bottom plow with no ballast on the tractor, and for plow day you can just drive it on and back it off the trailer. i think but don't know that the wierd plumping on your hyd. may have been for a bucket loader or a one way cylinder. you can remove it and put a plug in the hole, i think, and plumb like the other side. you should have regular hydraulic fluid in the pump. here's a pic. of my hitch and plow. hope this helps, chuck

Thanks for the help Chuck. I hadn't thought of the stress placed on the axle housing from mounting a 3pt hitch. Thankfully others on here think of things I haven't. I can use the drawbar for doing just about everything, main things I'd like a 3pt for is eventually getting a 4 row cultivator and maybe moving round bales, once I get ready to make another go at the farming thing. That looks like a real strong hitch you have on your 77 and looks sharp in the second picture plowing. How does your tractor handle the plow without draft control? What do you do when you need to pull a drawn implement, since you don't have the factory drawbar. From what I've heard from my uncle, my 770 was used mainly as a field tractor and doesn't appear to have ever had a loader on it. I will be plumbing it like the other side. Advantage of having the hose on the drain hole is when draining the hydraulic fluid it won't make a mess all over the platform, I may keep that short hose on just for that.
