Finally traded the allis. With this tractor I now have all UN molested gts. The paint one original but It's ok. That tires are shot. It's been sitting in a barn for years so everything is stiff on it. The grandson said the engine and rebuilt right before it was parked. I believe it as it sounds great. He didn't know the extent of the rebuilt other than the motor way completely torn down. Throttle cable is sticking a bit and the voltage regulator is missing. Other than that I can't wait to get it out and play with it.

It appears to have the bracket for the snow blade and tiller on the back axle. Added bonus!!

Thanks.

The blade bracket is different than the one I've got for my blade. The wiring is rough butt that's not an issue. I need to get the deck and mule drive off and get the wiring and rectifier installed and I should be good to go.

The deck is in good shape. I pulled it off and stacked it with the others lol. Is this deck made for this model wh? I doubt remember with this bar. I think this came off my raider. I can't keep track.

The hitch on the left is what came with this. I need to rotate it with the bar towards the rear(the way it sits now) but the bar hits the rear hitch. The other one is one I had and doesn't appear to fit at all. Do I need to fit the bar off the one on the left? If I point the bar towards the front of the tractor the way it was the front blade won't fit

The Charger appears to be 70 or 71 (model number will tell all). The 42"deck appears to 68 or 69 but has newer style belt guards installed. The tractors during that time were not sold with decks, they were an option so it could have came originally this way. It is the correct style deck for this model.

The dozer blade bracket has to have the bar mounted toward the front of the tractor. The dozer frame is wider than the bracket so it all fits together nice. The lift arm on your dozer blade is actually intended for a set of mid mount cultivators. You'll need a straight link aproximately 14" long for down pressure or a piece of chain if you want the blade to float.

That looks like a great score David! You've been busy over the weekend! I was going to say that the bar needs to go toward the front, but someone beat me to it.
