Jim, I don't think I have seen a conversion kit in person for a FH equipped cub? I have seen several of these styles though, some have been homemade:

Gary, are you able to adjust the top link in and out on your setup? It almost looks like it has a clevis or something similar mounted on a threaded rod?

Yes, it is a threaded rod that is adjustable. Also, I can use the fast hitch adjustment from the seat if I need to correct the angle of the planter. The bottom two link attachments slide into the tube and are bolted through it. I just leave one bolted in place and took the other bolt out. I side the loose side onto the pin. Once the snap pin is in place, it won't go anywhere.
