Hey guys, kinda gotta brag about this one. Got my sleeve hitch out of Alabama today for $100! Got part # 85518 from you guys,( thank you very much) got lucky and found it on ebay. Took a chance and ponied up the $100 with only a picture of the box. It's dated '93 so sure it's right for my 520h  and wouldn't you know, everything's there! Couldn't have done it without the wonderful members of this forum. Thanks Terry. Just what I need for my brinly plow, disk, tater plow, and backblade!20171229_215512.jpg.77aa1bbaf91c9443f2221113fd9fc864.jpg

Nice find.    I don't recognize  the two gold colored clothespin shaped parts.   Are they for a tiller mount?

Instructions say they connect tractor lift bar with ball end of cable. Long one for hydro, short for std.

Ed those are the clevis ends for the lift cable at the rockshaft end the long one is for the hydrostatic transaxle as is was/is the exact factory kit I bought for anniversary 520H new, the short one for the manual trans and it has both conduit tubes for the hydro(bent) and manual(straight), @Goldann520, I drill several extra holes in the lift arm for different lifting/running height/depths of attachments, Jeff.

Thanks Jeff. After holidays may need that front weight set up! @WVHillbilly520H by the way, only fuzzy part of instructions is how (and where) tube holder mounts, but guess I'll figure out after fender deck is off.

Just PM me and we'll go from there, the weights are 42# JD pieces, also if you are thinking about a tiller you will need the rear axle hitch bracket for a snow plow ,Jeff.

Not really interested in selling it right now @Goldann520 but I'll contact you first if I decide to. I'm wanting to add to my accessories right now. Looks like getting the Wheel Horse has lit a fire under your butt...lol.

But I do have a question about the mounts for attachments @WVHillbilly520H...so I bought the tiller with my tractor, and the previous owner, or dealer ( he probably had dealer install necessary stuff to accommodate the tiller) had the cable tube, lift bar, etc, in place. But what attachments do you use with the "sleeve hitch" like @Goldann520 just bought ?

Ya @Horse Newbie unfortunately I get obsessed with my tractors, cars, saws. I try to finish them my way. I'm very anal., in case you didn't figure that out yet, before starting something else. Sometimes I don't quite make it. 😣 The hitch is for brinly type attachments like I stated earlier in my post.

@WVHillbilly520HSo you have to remove the sleeve hitch bracket, ( like @Goldann520 bought), to put on the bracket for say a trailer ball( for lack of correct terminology) ?, or can you leave the trailer ball thing on and the sleeve hitch thing on at the same time ?

The trailer "pin" hitch can stay on while the sleeve hitch is on, just like my pic above, but the sleeve hitch needs to be removed for the tiller to be mounted, Jeff.

      I am looking for a steering wheel, a rock shaft, and a clevis hitch, for my newly acquired 82 C 145 black hood.

      I own a Charger 9, it is a 68 and I am wondering what I should ask for it. 
      I personally want to trade it, just cannot find anything worth my efforts.
      I found a younger gentleman in his 20's, he's over 650 miles away from me and he has himself a raider 12, I want it just he wants two tractors for it. 
      I personally feel my Charger is worth more than 250, as it is one of a kind.
      Please, let me know.

      So I've been searching for xi parts for my Dxi, thinking how nice it'd be to have a 60" mowing deck and clevis hitch when I get it running so I seen this 1 owner 520xi on CL and worked out a deal, so a 5 hour round trip it's home now, 1100 hours but yearly dealer servicing and needed repairs with the records I figured it couldn't be in too much disrepair, I don't really understand the small rear wheels with 23x8.50-12 Ags but got the nearly unused original 23x10.50-12 Kenda turfs also and a clevis hitch which the P.O. said was installed since new just to use as a trailer hitch, so plans are to get the Dxi running swap decks out and keep it as a trim mower with all my other 520H's seems 520 Wheel Horse is my magic model,Jeff.
