So here's a shot of the two options for lift arm orientation with this blade.
The first (up orientation/IMG 0789) *seems* right to me, but I'd love some confirmation. This does appear to be Dozer Blade Model H-50/H-54 (thanks, heatseaker!). I have the parts manual. but not the operator's manual for how to mount it, so any advice would be appreciated. The blade is not budging from the mount (both the pin lock and the bolt connecting the center push bracket to the pivot bracket are fixed in place--sledge?), so getting the whole thing in position and locked in is a challenge.

The J54/J50 series blades were introduced when the Onans went in and incorporated the lift 'under the axle', so as to not have the clearance problem to the RH side of the wide Onan engine.
Perhaps you can locate a newer J54 - L54, or UB54 blade, then trade yours off to somebody with an earlier Kohler equipped Case/Ingersoll.
I recall all the Kohler 442/444's with quick attach will work with the 'over axle' H blades, but only the 222/224's of early vintage with no matching exhaust bump out on the RH side of the hood.
