When adjusting the lift arms on a JD 800 hitch (not an 800A or 801), what is the maximum amount they can be lowered? How many inches of threads need to be left in the housing?

That's knida an iffy question ? If your threads are in perfect shape then at least as far in as the dia. of the rod I would think as a minimun depth. If the threads are getting sloppy for years of use then they may not hold at any depth ?

Deere did offer an optional adapter to fit up on the upper lift arms to let the lower ones down lower. Listed as for use with a # 20 dirt scoop I believe.

Just a WAG, but I would think (due to age and wear) 1 1/2"-2" of thread IN. Your choice. If in good shape 1" would probly do it. HTH
