Hi, if I level my 3 point (to the imatch) and then raise the hitch, it’s not level anymore.
I also notice that the left/right turn buckles are significantly different in order to center the top hook.
Any ideas?

Hard to tell from the pics but it appears one of the lower lift arms is on backwards.

Happens to the best of us. Maybe you should mark it somehow so it doesn't happen again.

All well that ends well. ;)

IIRC - the welds for the ball sockets are only on one side of each arm and will be facing the inside/PTO.

Like me yesterday, went to put the mower deck back on and the linkage didn’t drop to install it. I crawled around the tractor for 10 mins looking for something bent, broken or missing. I adjusted the 3 point lowering limiter so much it wouldn’t drop the imatch or the belly mower linkage. I finally noticed the imatch was still all the way up with the level all the way to the front lol. Pushed the 3 point down and magically the linkages drop too lol.

Question: I'm confused by how Scooter's arms' orientation could have changed before and after adding his iMatch.

Assuming, as in the pictures, he had the adjustable arm on the right side, and assuming the two arms were matched (hole orientation/length wise) before, how did one of them flip over? If they are set up correctly symmetrical to begin with (both with short side of arms closest to PTO let's say), and with the turnbuckles correctly attached on the outside of each arm, when you take them off and put them back on, do they not HAVE to go back that way only? In that specific orientation.

Maybe I'm missing something....

Since he has a backhoe I'd guess the 3-point didn't come assembled on delivery. He may have reversed an arm the first time he put it on and didn't notice until trying to attach the iMatch... :unsure:

See, this is why ‘imma dummy’ :)

I got the imatch about a year ago. Prior to that everything was assembled correctly. When I got the imatch, I removed the turn buckets, inspected, lubed, etc… then reinstalled incorrectly. It has been incorrect ever since.

I always assumed that my level issues were normal or because my tkv20 was heavy on that side.

It will be like having a whole new tractor again!
