Hydro I told you that this manual lift came off an original because that's what the seller told me. The more I look at pictures I think it came off a100 or122 something along those lines

Looks homemade to me.
What's the top of it look like?

That bottom bracket for the lift rod for a frt snow blade or snow thrower is definetly home-made, but the top looks factory, and around the vintage of an Original or 70/100 or 71,102,122,123, probably has two small cross holes for the wire bail to hold the lever in the float position. Newer tractors had the little pressed in latch pin on the front side.
It would look "more factory" if it was properly painted yellow.

Sounds good if I were into that sort of thing! I almost didn't go get that tractor but as a favor I did. The last year redoing and putting it back together taught me measures!!! I now have a hobby I love and my biggest take away is how America really use to like putting out quality...doesn't matter what it looks like,just how it was built

As Denny mentioned in his post above, there should be a wire bail that mounts in the holes at the top of the lift handle that allows the lift handle to float.

Here's an excerpt from a page from the manual for the 1x2 series that has some info on that style of lift handle:

Here's a close up photo of the lift handle on my Original (slightly different but close enough) that shows the wire bail.

I think Charlie has them at CCS, up above in the margin.
