3 point hitch ?'s

I got my 784 ready to go and I have a few questions. It didn't have a factory 3 point when I bought it but I found one in the bone yard. I need to adjust the lift links but they don't move. I read the owners manual and there is a statement about the pins having something to do with this (in picture). Do I need to remove the pins to adjust the links?

True, outside chain in way for row crop. That inside bracket only holds a large spring on the utilities.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see I do have the check chains and put 1 of them on after this picture was taken. The outside bracket is for utility tractors and row crop uses an inside chain. They connect to the bracket under the PTO shaft.

I see you did NOT get the check chains with the hitch, there is another bracket that bolts to the axle housing for those.

Thanks for the responses. I figured they were rusted but wanted to ask before I started trying to move them and mess them up even worse. I'm getting a torch set up next week and this will be first on the list.

The pins in question LOCK the arms so they don't float on the lift rod.
The arm is THREADED into a square block INSIDE the cast part.
The "passenger" side arm has the levelling crank box, the "drivers" side is exactly the same thing without the levelling crank box, you can adjust but you have to pull the pin in the actual draft link and SPIN the cast housing.
Take it apart, you will see exactly how it works.

If left outside they seize up. So you are then down to the big vise and the hot wrench to free them up after trying to force grease in the zerks. Seen this often happen with 06, 56, and 66 tractors.

I'm not a fan of 3-point hitches but the piece you need to thread up or down for adjustment could very well have a machined flat spot which keeps it in place when adjusted properly when the pin or pins are back in place. If the owners manual states you need to remove the pins for any adjustment in length of the round rod above your fingers that is most likely the case. I have seen top links which have that type of adjustment lock which is more visible then on your set-up. The only adjustment I see possible from the components shown in your photos is through the round rod above the fitting attached directly to the lift arms, Hal.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review - by Staff. When we finally checked out the 3000 PSI North Star, the whole story chaned. This unit was equipped with an 11 HP Honda engine with fuel shutoff, adjustable flow and optional syphon degreaser dispenser. It didn't have a pressure release or electric start to facilitate easy starting but according to the instructions, simply pulling on the trigger while cranking was sufficient. This method of starting proved more than adequate and kept the cost down on the unit. It had all the important ... [Read Article]
