For the things I'll be doing with this tractor, I don't know if I'll ever need it, but what about a tilt cylinder? Am I going to have a tough time finding a cylinder that works for me there?
Depends on where you look. This is really a custom part (with a price to match).

You can find them here
fitritehydraulics.com-pricing

I have been thinking about this for a decade, maybe this will be the year I order one, so next year will be the year I actually have one.

I see (and thank you). So it's even tougher to get right than the top link.

I'd like to give an update. Especially with the Pat's added the top link is not so hard, and I plan to try to source that locally. However, the tilt is not so easy.

Here's what FitRite can do for me/us:

"I would build your T&T units with 2" dia cylinders and 1 1/4" dia rods similar to those pictured.
Here is what you would be getting and what those costs would be.

A cat 1 top link with a working length of 16 3/4"- 23 3/4" allowing for the added length of the Pat's QH. $315
A side link built to provide an equal amount of tilt angle to both sides. $455
2 hose kits made with 1/4" hose and 1/4" male AG type couplers. $120
2 sets of flow restrictors, these allow for slower smoother adjustments of the hydraulic links. $30
UPS 4 day shipping costs of. $109

So for $1029 you can have this complete top & tilt set built for your application and shipped to your door.
Current lead times are running a minimum of 30 weeks."

Quoted from Brian at FitRiteHydraulics.

I plan to order the tilt cylinder from him and just deal with the wait. I don't have any 3 point implements yet.
