Does anyone have photo's of the receiver hitch on a MCI 102A3 ,homebuilt or shop bought I don't care ,just need some ideas to get me started on fabbing up a hitch for our red missile.
I'll be pullin my 1/2 ton chevy plow truck,as the A frame will mount up to the plow mounts on the truck.
Thanks

Here's what I did on the MC9. Should be similar on the 102.

Let me know if you want to see it early next month on our way to Pueblo.  We won't be able to come through
Basalt, but we're still looking at coming through Leadville and spending one night somewhere near there.
Probably be there the afternoon of Jul 31.

I just posted these for Beatenbo, then realized the installed photo was too dark. This is on an MC-8, but it should be the same. We have towed a Ford 3/4 ton 4WD with this hitch. and have had no problems.  Jack

From the pix of Nick's 102 rear frame components, it is not the same as an MC9/MC8. I wouldn't have thunk it. My 9 doesn't have the big steel parts I'm seeing in the pix...take a look...
Nick, did you add steel to the frame to mount the hitch?

I think everything in the photo that is painted black is what Nick added. Unpainted is OEM MCI. Looks like my MC-8.  Jack
