I have a D-14 with the snap-coupler hitch. I would like to convert this to a three point system without buying an expensive conversion kit. Any ideas on the most straight forward way to do this would be appreciated. Thanks.

My 1957 D14 has a 3ph of my own design that is fully functional as a Cat 1, yet allows you a fully factory (un-welded) hitch frame ass'y. I use mine with a 5' brushog mower, 7' backblade in Wisconsin winters, so I know it works. What you do is to replace the lower quick-hitch type pins retaining the drawbar frame to the underbody of the tractor with drawbar pins of the same o.d.
then take and slip the lower balljoints of your new arms over each respective side, pinning toward the center of the tractor. You then slip the key in place. The standard flimsy wire keys work great, because they will fail and break before you do any real damage to the tractor or implement! You may also want to find some sort of spacer (I use a large nut) to eliminate too much play on the lower ends. Next either buy two connecting rods or use very heavy chain links, bolted to connect the upper to lower arms to they are parallel. The third link is up to you, as there is no easy way to do it without a good welded connection. Email if you have any questions.

For what Saginaw County Tractor charges for their kits, I wouldn't waste my time adapting, cobbing, and resorting to trial & error. They have an excellent product, drawbar stays on ($395 fob). A buddy has one on a D-14, and I'm going to get one For my D-15D.
