Never seen anything like this before. For sale nearby for $65. Came across it today while looking for something else.

You turn the adjustment rod to raise or lower the arm and put the lock down so no ajustment can be made until the lock down is moved.

Pretty much all tractors with a 3 point hitch have one of these on the right side arm. It's so you can tilt a moldboard plow properly when your right tires are in the furrow.

Nowadays people use them to tilt a box blade or other attachment as desired.

Buy it- if it works, it's worth it. All tractors have an adjustable side link on one side, but most are simply a threaded tube that you turn to adjust. This is a crank adjust, and they work better and smoother- plus you can usually reach it from the seat, and adjust. They are an upgrade, that's for sure.

That style are really nice, I've never seen one of those on a Kubota that was stock, but anything is possible.
Top pin hole size might give a clue as to size of tractor that it was used on.

You must be a LOT younger than I thought!
Fords had those, from the early 8N's at least though the 80's (?).
A very handy to use right side 3pt. lift height adjustment.

My Ford 2N had one ( 1943 version), 8N (1948) as well. Still have one on the shelf along with a lot of parts NLN.

Nope... I'm really old, but the only Ford I ever owned until recently was the 1927 Model T I bought when I heard that they would stop making them.

I think our Massey Ferguson 50 had the crank style. Pretty sure the old Ford my Dad had had it too. The new Ford has a pin that slides through, ok but not as convenient as the crank.
