You have to remove the lift, and lift motor guard from the tractor. That round ring/tube on the side is what covers the motor. I personally have not pulled a lift motor apart, but it can be done.

Seems I was a bit off after further review of your pictures. Your blower (thrower ) has 4 attachment bosses, and my bracket only has 3, so my bracket will not work without modifying. I did notice that your blower dose not look like mine either, so I would question if you have a different year. I think you have an earlier model than what I have. For instance, my blower has a gear driven chute turret, and yours has a cable. My blower is from my 1969. You may want to scope out the manual section of the forum.

Here is a pic of the blower bracket for my application.

This is the tag on the blower. It is very different than my 2 stage Ford Blower

That looks like an earlier model.

I figured the Ford 140 was the same.  Was not aware the 120 is also interchangeable.  
The electric lift is giving me a bit of trouble.  It is real slow and sometimes does not want to cooperate.  Any adjustment or fix that you are aware of? 
 

On the lift, there is a large plug with a screwdriver slot in it. I took mine out and the motor ran great. Added some lube to loosen the old grease and it is running pretty smooth. Just need the rest of it to use it.

I will keep my eyes out for a spare for you and thanks for the tip.

Can you snap a photo or 2 of the plug?

I mounted my snow blower on my jake 1450.  I hit the switch to engage the PTO.  The blower started to spin and my belt popped off.  After putting the belt back on, the pto switch does not want to spin up the blower.

Any ideas?

In response to:

I agree with Stiemmy's advice to-

  Start simple when troubleshooting.

 

Make sure your linear actuator (which powers electric lift system) plugged in tight and is grounded perfectly to the frame. Note: If the ground wire is missing, one end connects to the small screws around base of actuator arm and the other mounts to the bolt holding the foot guard shroud by your toes. Mine gave me intermittent problems and then quit, I took it off then tested it (it worked), so I realized it was a lack of good grounding. Since I had it off, I took it apart and greased it. Works like a charm. Wish I would have checked the ground first- LOL! I realize this is an old thread, but responses may help others with the same issues.

I have the motor for one of these. It wouldn't work at first. There is a large screw slot at the end of the fitting. Took that out and put a little oil in to looosen the grease and it now works fine.
