Ya ive made 3, we made them to hook into all 3 points, or we did make one that looks like the one TSC sells that just hooks to the main arms...I like the ones that hook to all 3 points...u can pull a wagon, hook a hook in it.or use a trailer ball on it..

There was a Sleeve Hitch adapter, which is probably the closest thing to a draw bar

My grandfather made one for his homemade 3pt, looked like it was just a 1/2" flat bar with 1/2" holes drilled in it, and pins welded on either side. Looked factory made.

Here are a couple of bars I made for my Suburbans. The round one is the type I used to fabricate home built attachments around, the flat bar was my attempt to copy the drawbar Sears offered (also a 5 hole IIRC).

I know this is an old post, but I just got a 3 point for my old Sears. So I wanted a draw bar for it and I too searched for one and could not find any. What I did is take a 20" draw bar with the 5/8" ends and simply cut out 8". I measured 1" from one end and put a "square line", then measured 8" (actually 7 3/4" as the bar I had started out as 19 3/4") and put another line. Cut out the 8" on the band saw then ground down one face at a 45 degree angle about 1/3 of the way through the draw bar and but welded and filled the area I ground out. T hen turned it over and ground the other side down to the 1st weld and filled that side. ground everything nice and smooth (so it looks nice) and it looks like a factory 12" draw bar. I just got to paint it and done. The next I need to build is the side arms and stops to hold the draw bar flat, like I did for my 8N and I will have a mini tractor. The only dilemma I have is should I now paint my sears gray and red to match the Ford 8N?
