    Boggen's idea of a bent u-bolt stirred up this idea.

    Maybe a v-bolt instead of a v-plate? For more contact area if needed to prevent slippage, a short piece of angle could be welded inside the V.

    v-bolts

    So Gearmore actually had a left and a right receiver just like pictured
    and they were only 20 bux each so I ordered them. I can just leave
    the OE brackets on and set the two new ones on center where I want.
    ALSO, I can use one OE and move a new one to offset the tiller.

    The brackets that are needed to hold the new ones on as I drew in CAD,
    well I asked a friend and he said No Problem! They own a Piranha Iron
    worker so I am dialed!

    Good result. The factory parts will look "factory" and so will the clamping brackets.

    I wonder if the tiller was made for an early BX or other SCUT that had less arm spread.

    Post photos when done.

    tightening up the nuts. and it will cause the 2 washers to bend right around the square tubing on tiller.

    or skip the extra washer and 4 nuts, and just go for a generic U bolt, with a washer, and 2 nuts. ((suggest adding 2 more nuts. so the nuts do not spin off / back out on you, threads shear off))

    if the washers or U bolt bends as you tighten the nuts, keep on tightening till you think you got them tighten enough they will not bounce loose. (may need to get off tractor a couple times to check) and tighten up. on the first time tiller is used with Q/A after that should be trouble free.

    ==============
    edit ok re-looking back at your pictures, the edit picture of mine most likely would not work, but just a generic U bolt by itself with a washer and a nut on each leg. and just keep tightening the U bolt and let the U bolt bend how ever it wants to bend.

    have done it a few times on some pipe gates that look kinda like a P. and on a few other things. it holds, that is all i care about. bending of bolts well just will have to live with it.
    You could even "customize" the U-bolt [and/or the straight flat stock piece that comes with it] a little bit to make it fit the square tubing on the tiller more snug-ly, by putting the curved section over a similarly shaped /angled piece of metal- [an anvil, bench vise, or some such] heating it up and banging an angle into it.

    I've been disassembling an old disc [it had been left on on our property when we moved there] in order to use the pieces as additional weight in our ballast box, and the u-bolts on the disc unit were similarly "customized" to fit the bar.

    Oh Never mind- I just saw your last post- updated since I started this...
