Bought this blade for Power King or Economy really. I thought maybe for JD, but later saw one for that, and this is longer frame. Fella that had it said early PK, not JD. Bought it at that huge dealer sale in Anderson, IN.  I had to buy it, just because. Won't fit anything I own, but wonder if anyone here had interest? Looks like it mounts up on frame and clamps on with little blocks somehow. Four links in back for the rear mounting. Have to look in my info to see if I can find this one. Had a long lift bar w/spring like other items use. That darn thing was HEAVY! The blade itself is 1/4" thick steel or close anyway. Heavy angle iron around it. 6" channel for main frame. Here's pix. Pix of JD with blade in background, it is different than mine.

Could the blade be for a Case? Like a 444 or a 446?

Thats the same blade my 1973 Power King 1614 uses.  It won't fit my 1980, 2418 so somewhere in there they changed the design. 

They are built well!

Those where the blades used from the early '60s to '73. And yes, saying those blades are heavy is an understatement! It is missing one of the trip springs, and it should have a piece of flat bar, not a turn buckle on the one end, other then that it looks great!

Yeah, figured missing one spring. Not sure where those should hook to in back. Not the turnbuckle for sure. There is two bump ups with holes thru them there. One has the turnbuckle in it, other is ahead of that and not used now. What should those be for?

I could not post this before from my phone, on the desktop now. Hopefully it explains it a little better. I will also take some pictures for you.

OK, so a strap sets between those two bump-ups with springs on each side of the front bump! Wonder where one would ever get another spring? Wish I had a tractor just to try it on. I want to Mount It! ........But there are people around! :smilewink:  :(

eBay! You can buy a plow trip spring, or the helper springs for the manual lifts are the same spring.

Those two  short 1X2 rectangular pieces go into  rectangular holes just behind the front axle on an older Power King like my 1958 model  to operate the lift mechanism.

OK, at Rochester, IN show and friend has many early PK's.  Finally got to see the way blade should mount on tractors. There is two rectangular pieces of tubing welded to frame. The blocks on the plow lift link slip right inside those two rectangular receivers.  I see in back where the four straps, two each side bolt up to frame. Now, I get it!
