    Default brass tapered pin

    When I bought my tractor the dealer tech used a 12" or so brass tapered pin to help jockey the implements around for 3ph connection. Anyone now where these type pins might be found. I've used the ironworkers pin wrenches and this brass pin will not gall the hitch. Seems a good idea. Google wasn't my friend this morning.

    A regular drift punch or even a longer pry bar will work just fine and not mar the hitch. You aren't pounding on it are ya??

    The tool I like best is called a jimmy bar. 30" long and has a taper on one end like a drift punch and a flat on the other like a crow bar. I have two and I think they were under $10 each

    Brass, being softer then steel, won't mar the surface of the implement. But 12" or so doesn't seem to provide much leverage.

    I think he's just looking for a 'poker' to align holes.. I've gotten drifts and punches, including a brass one at harbor freight for cheap.
