Yes for me too, but they do know what pipe goes where, seeing some of the things they do, don't know how they remember it myself

nice job, i take it the drop pin is used for a hitch mount.
the old ford tractor the company i used to work for had 3 foot x 3 foot x 3 foot block of concrete on the back to counter balance the front end loader.

Yes it's a front hitch, the old concrete block was a good way of adding weight in the 1950-1970's over here too, they were home made most of the time, by filling a 40 gal: oil drum with concrete and building a frame round it and picking it up on the 3 point linkage.

Some were just two hooks set in concrete.

Sure we do a lot of car and tractor looms here, so have lots of cables, we pull them from rolls on a rack, we also use cable markers.

I'm told it will be used here, and you will see it at work.
