I think the sleeve hitch I mounted on my 3240 was for an MTD or Craftsman and it was a pretty close fit.

Mine is quite a bit older than the current line of sleeve hitches. It has a row of 8 or so 1/2" threaded holes along the hitch. I found it in some partstree parts lists awhile ago.

The MTD sleeve Hitch You Have Looks Like the Old fast attach mixed with the even Older standard MTD sleeve Hitch That just connected to a Rod that ran through the Back of the tractor Then Up to the Lift arm on MTD tractor That had a Mid Lift arm on the right side My MTD Made Wards Had that style without the Back Plate

I have no idea how (or if) this was usable in the condition I got it in as nothing hooked the hitch to the lift plate arm. It was free with my Agri-FAIL Agri-fab box blade purchase so I have ~$0 in it. It's now been repurposed as a hydraulic hitch on my 3240.

Yeah that is actually two different sleeve Hitches the Old and the Fast attach Mixed The Old Hitch section is actual a True MTD Made Part The Fast attach section with lift lever is a Agri-Fab Made Part

He is an update on the xt1.2 I swapped out the K61 for a k65 from a simplicity I also am using the clutch and a break assembly from the simplicity. I added a under the seat gas tank from a deere. Now for the dash the upper I made a custom fiberglass she'll that shaved the gas tank hole I used a battery tray and shelf from a Husqvarna, and a tilt steering assembly from a Toro wheel horse. The neck around the steering shaft is a modified xt3 one and I'm using a aluminum steering box from an xt3. Front axel is spindles and drag links are from a newer Craftsman. I just needed to extent the drag links a little. Lastly added a electric PTO from a craftsman

The John Deere tilt works a lot better now I'm trying to decide if I want to try and cut up the JD dash and fiberglass it to my dash or just order an xt3 dash which I think I could make work
