Stan, If you can weld or have a friend that does, I can send you some dimensions for the aftermarket style. The OEM was cast.

Actually the original was not cast. Now, I do not know how long they used this style, but here is an original that I have.

Thanks to everyone who responded to my question, and the references to previous posts and discussions on this topic. I should have done a search before I jumped into this. So from what I've read, the early ones were fabricated, later they were cast then toward the end of production they were fabricated again--I hope I got that right. Checking the prices and seeing as how my FH is probably one of the early ones and is on my 57 LoBoy, I think I will use the information provided and try my skills at building one. Thanks again to all. Stan

Stan,

My early '57 F-Cub has the cast version and I'm very confident that it is original to the tractor.

Thanks for that insight Bill. My FH is an add on although parts of one was on the tractor when I acquired it. A FH was purchased from a FORUM Member and was used to complete the original one so I really don't know how old it is other than a FH was probably on the tractor from the beginning and the SN is 4829J which is about in the middle of the range of SN produced in 1957.

Mine is from a 1955 Cub purchased with fast hitch installed. So apparently sometime between 1955 and 1957 the switch was made.

I believe the original ones were forged.

There is a spare one (or 2) in garage, but I ain't giving it away. I much prefer the 2x2 receiver that Bob Perry made for me (Ric Prentice style) for it's unlimited usefulness.

I don't know if the later style was cast or forged, maybe I should just call it "one-piece" vs. "welded" or "fabricated". Every one I have/had is/was the one-piece style. My earliest is a '59 Lo-Boy that seems to have always had a Fast-Hitch and is the one-piece style. A '57 brochure shows a welded style and a '58 shows one-piece style. My long-stripe sales brochures ('77 and '78) show the one-piece style. But IH reused a lot of old pictures in their brochures, so collectively all the brochures prove is that the one-piece style existed by '58.

My 12/54 parts catalog is about the earliest that would have a Fast-Hitch listed. It gives part number 520 095 R11 for the pull bar extension. My next newer catalog is 6/63 and lists it as 520 095 R2 (the same as shown at the top of this thread). Given the way IH numbered parts, it is reasonable to conclude that the welded version is 520 095 R11 and the one-piece version is 520 095 R2. So the question reduces to when the newer part number replaced the older. Some parts catalogs between '54 and '58 might narrow it down some more.

If they changed back to the welded style on very late machines, it was never shown in a parts catalog. Such a change may have been done as a manufacturing convenience and only been documented in some shop work orders. They may have even found a pallet crate full of the earlier part shoved to the back in a warehouse and simply used them with no documentation.

This is an earlier post that had been in the Vine. Since it contains some useful information that may help members in the future it has been moved to the main forum.

PLEASE NOTE: The original poster is no longer looking for this part. This post has been edited to remove any of the "Wanted" references
