    Quick hitch bushings

    Just bought harbor freight quick hitch for 1025r (hope not a mistake). Do I need to get cat 1 to 3 bushings for lower pins on cat 1 implements? Top link it appears from what I can find you go cat 1 to 2 and cat 2 to 3. Am I correct on this? If not any advise from the experts is appreciated. Thanks

    On the top link, yes. Takes two bushings to get to the correct size.
    On the lower pins, you can do that, but there are actually quick hitch bushings with the large diameter outer stop on them. Either way works.

    Jim is correct...

    Here are a couple of pics to maybe make things clearer for you...


    Here's a standard Cat 1 top link pin. In the picture are two bushings... a Cat 1 to Cat 2. and a Cat 2 to Cat 3. They're placed on top of, or over each other...

    Here are a couple of different way to do the lift arm pins....

    A single pin-on Cat 1 to Cat 3 bushing... shown on my ballast box...

    That works for some implements, but others, like my Land Pride Grading Scraper need a different set up. I had to use the same method as on the top link pin... One Cat1 pin, with two bushings over it...

    One thing to keep in mind is that the "top link" bushings are NOT the same size as the "lift pin" bushings... Just make certain you've grabbed the right packages so you don't have to make the 50 mile round trip to town to get the right ones... Don't ask me how I learned to pay attention......

    I believe the top pins are 3/4 inch and the bottom pins are 7/8 inch.

    ErikR - Do you, by chance, have the brand and part #s for those bushings, pin, and retainer? Trying to find them.
