Re: X-series 3-pt. hitch depth stop installation

First, I mounted the Rockshaft and all the plates and components loosely and tried to mount the big bushing into the half moon. It wouldn't easily go into place.
So, I took it apart and set the Rockshaft in place without the bushings and with the backing plates just hanging on the shafts (they go on the inside of the frame).
Then I was able to get a better angle for the threaded rod and large bushing. I used a punch on the end of the threaded rod and gently drove the threaded rod and big bushing into place. The big bushing is machined with smaller diameters at each end. The side with the rod goes to the inside of the tractor.
