Called my local Kubota Dealer and they want $350 for the Top Link. I don't need he whole system. I just need the Cat 1 and Cat along with the tube. They want to sell me the whole system.

Purchased the TSC replacement but I am not satisfied with it. Going to use it as a backup,

Any idea what would be better?

Are you just wanting to neck down the top link for cat 1 diameter pin? Can you put a sleeve/bushing on the top link pin? There may be some in the grey tool box…mine came with extra sleeves. But you can find them at tsc or any ag type store.

I wondered the same. Maybe try a Cat 1-2 bushing for a couple dollars? I think they’re about $3 each, but could make them as well. I think you’d just need the one bushing for the implement if I understand correctly.

I bushed my Cat 1 to 3 for the quick hitch for a while. Since did away with using them.

Top link and lift arm pins are different sizes. Not interchangeable.

It sure what you mean by “sell the whole system?” It’s just an adjustable link with an eye on each end for attaching the pins. As far as I know, you buy OEM from Kubota or a generic from a supplier like TSC.

303john: What is it about the TSC top link that you don’t care for? (Personal tastes/decisions are fine…I’m just trying to understand what could possibly vary one’s decision on such a simply thing as a top-link. I tossed mine aside when I went to a hydraulic top-link and if I thought it’d please you …. I’d give you my genuine Kubota toplink… but if TSC’s doesn’t do it for you…. there’s not much difference other than color…)
