Default 3 point hitch for 782

Since i live in Europe i'd rather build my own 3 point hitch. So after i have been gathering ideas for some months i have bought kubota lift package which include lift arms, top link and liftrods for the liftarms.
I have measured and drawn my plans into cad and i'm not sure if i need to change somethings, so any feedback is appreciated
One of the things i dont know the lenght of is the lift bar from the cylinder back to the liftrods, so if anybody knows how to make one that would also be great

My inspiration:
Lift bar
Cat 0 Hitch on My 1450 and his plans
Custom Wideframe Cat. 0 3 point
3 point on a QL 1000

It looks like your adjustable lift link is attached to your draft bar too far away from the tractor. See cub cadet lift diagram attached. this will increase the weight you can lift but greatly reduce the height you can lift it.

I dont have a 782 anymore to compare lift bar length for you. it may not matter since yours is in a different spot than the 782 three point from cub.

True, i will have to make new holes for the draft bar once it all it assembled. I might try to measure the distance for the lift bar once i have taken it apart.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
