I am fabricating a 3-point hitch for my B; I have a second cylinder identical to the one already mounted. Any opinions about teeing off the coupling and using a cylinder on each side instead of one ? Would this help or even matter? Thanks for your input. J.D.S.

i used 2 original size cylinders when i built my 3 pt hitch for my model c. it uses the original rockshaft with some modifications. it will lift a heavy duty 6.5ft tandem disc. i don't know what it would lift with just 1 cylinder. it might be slower, i don't know.

When I built my 3 point on a C I used a cylinder off a WD instead on the one for a B/C because its larger and it works real good

some B and C tractors had dual cylinders. if you need two depends on what mechanical advantage you have. cnat hurt to have two. sometimes a bit slower, but you know you should have plenty of power. pressure is about 3000 psi pushing on less than 1 square inch so you can figure each cylinder will push about 2000 pounds. look at the linkage arm distances.

Adding A second cylinder will slow an alreadt slow hyd system to very slow.
the one cylinder lifting throught the original rock shaft will lift more wieght then you can keep the front on the ground.
