Anybody have the MF630 dozer blade, I'm looking for a good picture of the factory front bracket.
This is the best pic I have of 1 that I just found here at GTtalk.

As you can see it's a small pic looking for a nice big one and measurement of height.

Copy of IMG00197.jpg
i sold this plow and bracket but i have the later style that i can measure for you if i find it
but this should be easy to figure with reference to the slots on the grill and across the hood

Mike thanks those pictures good enough, tells me what I need to know.
Question the spring is that where it's suppose to go?
I thought it went to the frame near the pivot point? Not the top of the blade.
The lift assist spring.

Well, theres a hole on the center of the blade and the center of the arch. Theyre the same size. The spring is a perfect fit this way. The early snowblower I got with the 12 was complete too. And you konw all the brackets and what not with the early blowers. so i dont have any reason to doubt this.

That is not the only style front bracket that MF made. That is the earliest style.

Here is the style that came on my 1969...

Doug, youre right. After looking through the "library" that is not the "correct" spring shown in the brochures and parts books. Not that it makes a difference.

Ya I just checked the part's books 3 different MF630 blades all the same just little differences.
Early 2 piece push tube.
Late 1 piece push tube with skid shoes
Late 1 piece push tube w/o skid shoes

Looks like I have the late style w/o skid shoes.
That bracket won't be hard to make. I'll just set the height for what ever spring I come up with and make it work.
Thanks for the help guys, learn something new everyday.
Now I got to get George to change the title since I put the wrong model #

English measure is good, I have a hard time with Canadian metric, guess I just too old.
I got enough info now to make my own.
Thanks again.

Well I found a MF630 parts diagram here at GTtalk in the manuals section and I looked though my pile of info and found an operators manual for the exact MF630 that I have. Here's a picture that I have of what I wanted to know right from the start.

I looked in the parts manual and realized that you have the late model blade, I sent you hangar dimensions from my earlier model, sorry about that. I uploaded the MF 730 manual recently in response to a request, which had me looking at that implement, something I hadn't looked at in years. It seems that over time the MF 630 and the MF 730 dozer blades both adopted the same non-reversible wear blade and both lost the skid shoes. I don't know if that represented cost-cutting or a better understanding by AMF/Massey about how consumers were using the tractors and for how long they would typically use them.
