There is no need to use the bracket shown on any implement other than what it was made for. The fact that you are using something that does not require draft control does not mean that you do not use the Top Link Connection of the Draft Spring. There are very few implements that required you to use any other method of attachment other than the normal Top Link connection. As has been said, the Post Hole Borer/ a couple of mower models and that is more or less it. You DO NOT need one of these brackets normally or they would have supplied them with the tractor. The original Post Hole borer used one but the later ones used the long pin but with a "Y" shaped attachment on the PHB so the bracket was not required. The bracket was used not to prevent the Draft Control from working, as it wouldn't work anyway as the load was pulling at the Top Link, for the Draft Control to work it needs to push at the Top Link. The bracket was usually used to attach SOME non Ferguson implements that were made to fit any tractor and it was easier to use a bracket like this than alter the implement. Some Post Hole Borers did not use this type of attachment bracket at all and were attached to the normal Top Link connection. I would say that 99% of all implements that you will use with the tractors will never require a top link connection such as this and if it is necessary it will come with the implement as it is not a tractor part...John(UK)
