I have had my 425 for 6 years and its pushed a lot of snow dirt etc.  I noticed when pushing snow last week the blade jumped around a lot, seemed loose.  I checked it out and realized there was wear around the pivot point holes.

So after some thought I came up with a plan.  I would add plate to top and bottom of pivot drill out hole and add longer bolt.

 

Ignore the bubble gum welds.  

 

The lift pivot was worn out also.  I decided to weld some nuts to the frame.  I drilled hole for cotter pins and drill out threads of the nuts.

 

Added bit of spray paint to hide the welds and it seems to work.  Not rattles and way tighter now. 

 

Anyone spot the mistake???

Are you referring to pulling up to the hitch the wrong way and taking a pic?

Nope its mounted on the tractor properely.  

 

I put it together took a photo of it on the floor.  Put it back on the bench to hook up cylinders.   Realized I had it backwards.  Happy there was only on bolt

Looks like it'll hold up for a long time like that. :D

Similar to a repair I had to make on an older 42" blade I had, I use a piece of pipe acting as a long washer, worked out good for me.
