Rear Cultivator Gang Beams

Are fast hitch gang beams different than non fast hitch? I didn't know if I took standard rear gang beams and unbolted the brackets if they'd fit a fast hitch tractor?

They will fit a fast hitch. http://www.tm-tractor.com/gim/rgng-fh_001.htm

But the lift arm brackets(cast part) for the fast hitch have a smaller hole than the regular ones.

If you try to use fast hitch rear lift springs on the normal lift bar, you will break them. They almost fit, but not quite.

I'm thinking about throwing a set of cultivators on dads high crop and actually trying it out. I have to do some measuring if it'll even fit my rows it is set all the way in right now but I'm not sure how wide it is. Does anybody know what is different about high crop cultivators?

I believe it was JP who tried to sell his high crop on eBay one time and said it had the correct high crop cultivators. I didn't know what that meant. I assumed it was longer shanks or something.

The UMF and tool bars are the same. If JP had longer shank standards on his, then that was his choice, and not part of the High Crop package AFAIK.
