I picked up a 3-point hitch for my H and I finnally got it mounted on the axle. Now I just have to hook up the hydraulics. It has a single cylinder that is double acting. I don't as yet have a control valve and looking at what's available at Orcheln's it might be a few paychecks away ( I get payed monthly at my in-town job).
So, I was thinking, If I drain the fluid from the top of the cylinder and plug it, I could have power up/gravity down. Besides having to hold the rod with one hand while steering with another hand and doing something else with my third hand,is there any disadvantage to not having power down on a 3-point? I suppose I could weld another stop on the hydraulic control rod.
