making a plow angle lever.

For those who may not know how the plow is set-up, here is a pic.
This is were the lever will go.
Thanks for reading and if you have any suggestions I would love to hear them!

Sounds very similar to the system that the Wheel Horse plows used. You might want to look at a few pics of those.
I did, its pretty much the same thing with a few minor changes. I think gravelys might have had a simaler set-up as well but im not sure.

I got tired too when I used the snow plow on the Jim Dandy , I added a hyd. cyl. , some quick couplers , and a extra valve to angle if you want to go that route I could explain in detail Al
That would probably work better, and be more fun to make. lol. But it would cost more then I want to spend on a simple project. It sure seems like you did a good job on it. I saw a pic of one were somebody did pretty much the same exact thing you did, here are a few pics.

I deiced to let this one wait, I don't think I will even use the plow until next winter. Its been a mild winter and I don't think it will snow again. I will do this project next fall. I think that I could do it with the 2 inch cylinder. I will make a diagram later of how I would make it work.
Oh geez. That comment is going to do it. The skies are going to open, now. Nice jinx.
