Wow , that's the oldest packaging I have seen so far
I know it sounds weird but I also collect the old Bolens packaging from the different eras

I don't know what I was thinking when I went out to look at the numbers on the plow. I looked at my mold board plow when I gave you those numbers lol...oops. The 21531-03 is the snow blade that I have lol. No wonder it looks like it lol.

Looked in the Manuals section and couldnt find a manual for that model plow. I will have to take a look in my Bolens books tomorrow.

What is this cable exactly and what is it used for?

snow1.jpg This isn't the correct location for the cable. I think I need to drill a hole in the lift arm. The piece I have the cable attached to doesn't move back far enough to lift the blade. It pretty much just stays on the same vertical plane but pivots on the lift arm.

I just looked at your pics and the cable is on backwards.

How is it supposed to attach? Looking at the manual both ends should have a clevis , one end attaches to the lift arm and the other to the blade.

(edit) Does the clevis end attach to the piece I have the cable looped through?
Thanks

yes the clevis goes on the other end.There is also a number 7 in the parts list cable bolt that attaches to the other end and locks the cable

:wallbanging: I finally figured out what I was doing and realized the bracket on the lift arm was upside down. After turning it over the blade raises and lowers with ease.
