Ford Lgt Snow Blade Issue Solved
Posted November 24, 2013 - 06:44 PM
I got a snowblade as part of the deal, and decided to throw it on my closed side 100.
Problem is the 100 doesn't have the rear frame brace,welded on, It uses a bolt on piece that I didn't get,so I had to make one.
I didn't have any flat bar big enough laying around so I cut a piece of angle on the band saw.
I had a piece of 1" 1018 round bar laying around, so I bored a couple of holes for the round bar, matched up the locations of the bolt holes with the 165 welded unit, and built the bracket. I had to weld on a couple of tabs for the other bolts but it should work OK, It's only a temporary fix..
I took the pics a couple of weeks ago, and they only show the bracket installed, not the construction.

That looks like a good job, isn't it nice to have a metal saw and arch welder. It looks o.k. to me, after you have ground to weld down to make the piece flush it doesn't matter what the weld itself looks like, just as long as you got good penetrati

The saw was a freebeie. And my current welder is a 100.00 Princess auto special.
