Has anyone out there put together a tow-bar for a T-6, A frame style, and may have a drawing available? I need to put one together to help move our T-6 and PT-19 (which now has T-6 style lugs). Thank you

Brackett Aircraft does a T-6 towbar that has most of the dimensions on it -

Personally, if you can, I'd invest the money to get theirs. They make excellent towbars at a reasonable price.

Another vote for the TR-6R, quite affordable and well made for the price.

Just to expound a little bit, Signature Flight Support (my employer) uses the TR-34A from Bracket at every single location in the United States and Canada. It is our standard universal towbar and we've never had issues with them and they can take a *TON* of abuse.
