Lo' there.  I got a JD 43 blade for free from a friend and I'm trying to mount it up to my Ford open sided LGT145.  My buddy doesnt have the tractor anymore so I couldnt look at anything on his machine to reference how it was mounted.  I've seen a few pics of setups that I Googled that had the hydraulic lift arm so you could raise and lower it with a cylinder and I'd like to build the same type of thing for my machine.  I can make that fit to my tractor easy enough, what I'm after though is how is the blade mounted to that bracket and how long is the cylinder?  I cant tell from the pic but it looks like it's 3/4" or 1" bore and in the 3" to 6" stroke length size.  If anyone has this setup and can send me some pics of how its mounted to the tractor and the blade mount to bracket setup I'd appreciate it.  Thanks.

Firemang:

 

I have the operator's manual for the 43 blade. It doesn't have any dimensiions, but does show how it mounts on a JD 110 or 112. Let me know if you want it and I'll sent you the PDF.

Actually I have that, after the hydraulic setup measurements more than anything.  Thank you though

I don't know if the 43 was ever officially set up for a hydraulic cylinder on the 120/140/300 tractors.  I will do some digging and post back.  I am looking for a 43 for my 120 as the 54 is too big for my place.
