Mark -

OneLapper (also a Mark) installed one on his PD4106; not sure if the cradle is the exact same design, pretty sure it's very similar - see this link (scroll down a bit to get pictures of the hitch install.  If you want more info, you can PM him or look him up via his website http://markdavia.com/ (at the lower left of the home page).

Make sure they weld on a couple of extra angle irons from the rear to the front of the engine compartment to take the fore and aft motion off the engine cradle.  Good Luck, TomC
