Reworked 3-Pt. Control On Deere 3010
He cut a 2 by 4-in. hole in the sheet metal housing that surrounds the 3-pt. controller valve arm just above the rear axle on the right side of the tractor. Then he bolted a 1-in. piece of flat iron to the control arm by tapping a 5/16-in. hole in the valve arm and using a 5/16 by 3/4-in. long bolt. He cut a slot in the bottom of the flat iron handle that's 5/16 in. by 1 1/4 in. so the bolt will not bind up when the handle is moved back and forth. The handle pivots on another 5/16-in. bolt a few inches above the valve, which is bolted to the sheet metal housing.
"Now the handle is just below and to the right of the seat. Very convenient and easy to operate. I wish I had made this change a long time ago," says Schulze.
