We have a 550 with a hitch bolted to those holes and it works great. No 3 pt interference

Got the tube and measurements and took them in to my welder/fabricator, should have the finished product back next week, I'll let you know how it turns out.

Well it took a bit longer to get it fabricated because we figured out the bolts wouldn't have room to turn next to the hitch tube once welded onto the plate. So we had to small tubes for each bolt to go in that were as tall as the hitch tube and I will use longer bolts to bolt the hitch on. The hitch is done and I will be able to pick it up on Friday when I am back home. Looking forward to getting it on the tractor so I can see how it works. :)
I'll post some pictures as soon as I get it and get it mounted.

Well finally getting around to posting some pics. I have to say I am loving the hitch so far. easy to change for hooking up different implements based on different ball sizes or a regular drawbar and if I am running something on the 3pt I just pull one pin and the hitch is completely out of the way. :)

I am thinking I am going to do this on my 770 too rather than trying to fix the swinging drawbar that got bent by my aftermarket 3pt hitch when it caught underneath the swinging drawbard while I was mowing, it's super convenient on the 550, just have to figure out the mounting logistics for the 770.
Here are some pics

You can see from the last pic that we had to use spacers on the bolts because there wasn't enough space between the receiver tube and the head of the bolt to be able to tighten the bolt so we needed the spacer and longer bolts.
