Can anyone who has an open side LGT with a blade send me some pics of how it's mounted?  I found a JD 43" blade in good shape at a garage sale for next to nothing and I want to try to build some new mounts for it and get it on my 145.  Maybe even put some electric over hydraulic cylinders on it so I can lift/lower and tilt it.  Thanks

 

New pics coming soon.  Got the 145 all torn down, all the small parts sandblasted.  Still need to send the tin and wheels out to a commercial blaster but almost all ready for paint!

The usual Ford LGT mount is under the frame, just in front of the rear end. It's not a good design because the plow only lifts a couple of inches. It's under the front axel. Better just to start from scratch! Poncho's is unusual.

I think it is factory though....The blade has the Ford stickers on it...I should look for a serial number I guess

Poncho , how does the plow lift ? Is it connected to the deck lift lever above the pivot point or below , like the rear lift does ?

It attaches above the pivot on the handle...no hydraulic lift on my tractors.

You've got to get a picture of the other side of your tractor! That seems like a sixties blade made to fit. Maybe something the dealer did?
Maybe a ford blade with a different mount? I don't know. But it looks like a good set up!

Heres the best I could find...its just a  "U" bolt attached to the lever, which connects to a flat bar to the blade mount....Unlike the under frame ones, it lifts nice and high
