Do you have it set up so that the digger is free floating???? IF you are trying to have the top link solidly mounted it will not work because it is lifting the rear off the ground when you go over a hump. IF I was three point mounting it I would use a chain linkage in the top link. Then you could set it out long enough to let the digger float.
They had a manual lift system on them. This raised the digger plenty high enough. Is your missing this???
Why don't you pot us some picture of what you have done. That way we can see if we can help you make it work as it is.
To convert it to PTO drive is going to be costly and will more than likely tear it up. The wheels being able to slip is the slip clutch on the old ground driven diggers.
