I smell so BS here.

1. The Fast Hitch was first offered in 1953, same year that JD offered a tractor with 3 point so where did the "dealing" come in? I bet IH didn't let anyone know they were making the Fast Hitch until they had it ready to go and a patten on it. JD may have tried talking to IH later but if they did it was to convert to the Fast Hitch from the 3 point.

2. The 3 point would have won in the long run as tractors and implements got bigger. To make the Fast Hitch strong enough to handle the bigger tractors and implemets would make it so massive that it couldn't be used on a row crop.

3. Ford did not own that rights to the 3 point, Ferguson did until 1960.

4. Both IH and AC messed themselves over by not allowing anyone any rights to the respective hitch systems. Had they allowed stand alone implement companies to make implements for those system they may have lasted longer. That ws a major blunder that was decided by IH management in the 50's, carried through to the end of the Fast Hitch in the 60's. So IH management was making dumb decisions long before the final years.

As far aas the original question.....if you have the time and know how you should be able to do it. I agree tht you should use the JD rockshaft and fab arms and links.
