found the owners manual for the blade under the manual section. didn't know there was a manual section. that blade is the FB-48. will get the blade back off tomorrow and make the lift bars and the guide angle pieces for the front. I have  a set of springs that should work.  thanks. will post pics once I get it back on the right way.

thanks you have helped a lot. this blade is not listed in my attachment pamphlet. I have looked all over the internet and cannot find any pics of this blade. I believe my D-47 (one in pics) is a 1968 or a 1969, I have two D-47s, this one is all origional down to the paint and letters and my other one is rough. also I have the message reply checked. only got a few emails before I quit getting them.    

You may have to recheck the box. Sometimes when there is a software upgrade here, things get set back to a default and you  have to redo  those things.

got it mounted like it is supposed to be. made the 4" brackets and they were way to short. ended up having to make 8" brackets for everything to connect. the angle iron on the front is not the correct size but it works and the springs make a world of difference. it was impossible to raise the blade up by myself without the springs. now just need to knock the pivot bolt loose so I can move the blade side to side.

ok. thanks. the shroud has been replaced on that tractor. the schroud is white and the rest of the motor is red.  the serial number for that schroud came back to january 1964. I was told from bush hog in a letter many years ago that the D-47s were made from 1966 -1972 so am wondering if these engines were sitting on a shelf or something when bush hog placed the engine orders.

From the price list I have, the D4-7 first shows up in the 1966 October 1st price list. It is also listed in the 1967 December 1st price list as well. By the November 15th 1968 price list it is no longer listed.

Looking at your lift arm set up, I don't believe you have an early model D4-7.

Sorry if I missed it, but do you have serial number for the tractor pictured above?

Check your PM , I am sending you s message there.

Sorry. Just saw where you posted your serial numbers. Since I believe 7000 was the starting point for the D4-7, the 7100 numbered tractor is an early one, and would have a S7-D Wisconsin like you later model. I suspect it has the different type of lift arm, not sure when they changed the lift arm rod from the right side to the left. I don't have the answer what exact year either of yours were made. Maybe someone else can offer more help there.

ok thanks. my other bush hog has a serial number of: 7110. it also has the lift arm on the right side.  the front rims are different on it though. the 7429 has the four nuts that hold the rims on and the 7110 doesn't have any nuts that hold the rims on. rusty rim is the 7429 bush hog. white rim is the 7110 bush hog

Here is an early lift arm set up. This may be George's D4-7, this picture was taken in Dover several years ago. Notice the seat assembly is different as well.

I would say that the white rims have been replaced or repainted as they should be yellow like the rear rims. Great looking D4-7.. :thumbs:
