Just wondering if anyone has any pics or diagrams for a ford lgt165 lift assembly for under the tractor to lift dozer blade? just bought blade and assembly but can't figure out where everything connects to the tractor.

Thanks

The manual for the trip blade shows the correct hook up.

 

You'll find it in the manuals section.

Welcome to GTT. You can have 3 free downloads per day from the manuals section. That is a good tractor. Good Luck, Rick

The Ford/Jacobsen dozer blade lifts from the mower deck lift carriage.
Does your blade have a long square tube extension like five foot?
With a "C" shape at the end?

post some pics if it doesn't look clear in the manuals. or so we can see if you have all the correct parts.  its fairly easy  though the "C" shape Joe talks about locks onto back of scissor frame for mower deck, make sure you go over the front crossmember of the scissor, that gives it the lift. also a mount that goes in front of tractor to locate left to right. be sure to remove mule drive for mower to give more travel up n down  

good luck Tom

Toms got it 95% right, except as far as I know, the rear "C' shape locks onto a separate bracket welded/bolted to the frame. It Is independent from the deck scissor lift system.

 

The scissor lift is still required for lifting the blade, but the blade can be run with out it if you have a front mount winch setup or equivalent..

 

At least I can on my LGT 100 and 165

 

The bracket is bolted on my 100 and welded on the 165.

Chopper is right about the rear bracket on the frame.  Seems to be hit or miss on if it is there.  My '83 165 did not have one, but the parts closed side 125 I bought had a bolt on one.  The 125 had never had a blade on it, though, because the bracket was not even so much as scratched.  I transferred it to my 165 without any problems.
