Eagle hitch and PTO

My VAC has an eagle hitch. When I bought it the PTO engaging lever was bent to a 90 degree angle facing to the rear. When I straightened it I noticed that it will hit the center support (turnbuckle)of the hitch and will require disconnecting the support to go from engaged to disengaged or vice-versa. This doesn't seem logical or correct. Does anyone have a picture of the Eagle hitch with something attached or have any idea what the solution is? Thanks

VA series with 3 pt require a different engagement lever and shift fork. They rotate the opposite way to engage. The lever/shaft and the fork will interchange with the earlier units. Send me an email if you need more information.

VACLee - Is the correct assembly available and what's required to change it? Thanks.

Easy to change. This is the internal parts you need. Spring actually is the same. Will also need bracket and pull rod. Email is open this time, sorry.

Severasl of us with VACs have had to bend the PTO lever to make it work with 3 point setups. I had to do it to allow me to engage my PTO to run my auger. Go figure!

In looking at pictures of other VAC and VA series I see a short lever connected to a rod that runs up to the right of the seat so it is accessible from the seat. I'm wondering if that was installed when the hitch was put on at the dealers and the one I have is for a version without a hitch. Looking at the "Master Frame" page of the VA brochure shown a VA without a hitch and a lever similar to mine. Most I can find photo's of with the Eagle have the short lever and the pull rod. Can the be changed easily?

I have a pair of non-eagle hitch VACs with after market 3-point rigs, but the problem is the same due to the upper 3-point link location. Looks like you would need to pull the PTO head or do some cutting and welding "in place".

Today's Featured Article - Restoration Story: 1964 JD 2010 Dsl - Part 2 - by Jim Nielsen. Despite having to disassemble the majority of my John Deere 2010's diesel engine, I was still hopeful I could leave the engine-complete with crankshaft and camshaft-in the tractor. This would make the whole engine rebuild job much easier-and much less expensive! I soon found however, that the #4 conrod bearing had disintegrated, taking with it chunks of the crankshaft journal. As a resul ... [Read Article]
