For the snow blower you need the stinger and atleast one donut. They come up for sale every so often around here. Two years ago when I got mine, there were two different sets for sale on CL. I will take pics with a tape measure for you later today. I assume that you are going to build a set. The other way to do it is to make a bigger stinger out of a pipe and fill it with lead so that it weighs as much as the stinger and donuts. Good Luck, Rick

 

Did you see: http://newlondon.cra...5050716117.html    ?  He is about twice what he should be getting for it. Its missing the rear lift.

I lost my pictures and links but your in luck, there is a few forum members who have built their own and have links to other Simplicity Landlord tractor with custom attachments so wait a while for them to come by.

 

You would like my custom built mid-mount grader blade for the 1964 Sim.

I took a walk :

The first one shown is homemade, the second on shown is an original with the donut, the last is for the front with two donuts. I think the front one is for use with the tiller. I am looking forward to the time when 6 of my GTs are restored and setup the original way with correct weights. Good Luck, Rick

The length of the 3" round rod is 10". The length of the 1" round rod is 8-3/8". The overall length of the weight with the 1" round rod welded to the 3" round rod is 15-5/8" long. The center of the 3/8" hole in the 1" round rod for the weight mounting pin, is 1/2" from the end of the round rod.

A stinger should not be tough to find, or expensive to buy. My last 6 or so went for a little over $1/lb.... $30/ea. They are extremely common and if you have a good way to source and cut 3" round stock, very east to make.

The picture above with 2 doughnuts is not a front weight....if it was, its hacked with no way to mount it. A front weight only holds one doughnut and it will rub the LH front tire when turning. By the book, front counterweights (45#+) were not shown using optional doughnuts (25-ish#).

A 36" blower or 46" dozer is about perfect with a stinger and doughnut. A 42" blower likes a stinger and 2 doughnuts.

Even with hydrolift I like to use rear counterweights. Eases the burden on the hydrolift and helps "float" attachments.

Kenny in another thread showed us how to find our pics we've posted.. open "my media" on the top of the screen when you reply to a post. He says every pic you post is there. I found mine under attachments when i opened it up. Try that. Tom

Thanks guys. now that i have an idea of how much it weighs and what it looks like, I can build one. It won't be a replica , but it will work. I'll be using 5# weights on a shaft to be able to balance it exactly.  I'll post pics when i build it. Tom

I've been using a weight bar as stock for cutting into top links on my AC/Simp attachments like on the forks I showed a month or so ago.. Good Luck, Rick

It pins into the the front plow mounts under the front. It was one of the things I got in a package deal two years ago from a Simpletractors guy. Good Luck, Rick

Here are the two large frame tractor front counterweights.  Yellow one is for FDTs, Black one was offered for a short time, for 3300/3400 series tractors.  The lift arm for countering rear attachments via lift rod is the critical part, and gets in the way for a second doughnut.

Tom, don't put to much weight on the stinger. I made my own a few years back and did exactly that, it made the blower to lite and it would float over the snow. You want enough to make it easy to lift but still heavy enough to cut into the snow.
Sounds like you are having fun with that all is, did you get it running good?
