Apologies on the thread rez, but I had this bookmarked and I was working on my own model 1949 blower today.  I thought I had a bad motor, but testing determined it was a wiring problem.  At any rate, before I got it figured out, I spent some time trying to figure out what the motor is from.  I'm 98% sure that it's a window motor that fit a pile of 70s/80s GM vehicles, including some Suburbans as a tailgate actuator.  I happened to track the picture down on Rock Auto, but many other sources will work.  Look at the front left/right rear window actuator for a '76 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser.  Cardone P/N 82016 or 4216.  The gear is listed as well, Cardone P/N 8290 or 4290.

Thanks for the info. Pretty soon ill have to get working on this project again. It got put on the backburner for the summer

Hey everyone I've finally gotten back to the project. I still haven't gotten around to getting the electrical hooked up however I have gotten the blower mounted and Hydraulics plumbed. I was able to repair the aux hydraulic valve so it no longer leaks. I also replaced all but the 2 long hoses that run to the front. Here's some pics. Today I'm going to pick up some steel to make a basic cab as it gets insanely cold here in Wisconsin. More updates to come

I see you bypassed the engine manifold and went direct to two mufflers.  Any benefit to that?

You will need a good 350+ lbs hanging on the 3pt to effectively push that beast around on a heavy snow day.

My set up below.  Hydraulically actuated.  The blower is 500 lbs.  Hence the need for counter weights.

You'll have a lot of fun.

Very nice mjes92. Don't see too many of the 51" 2 stage blowers.

I don't think there's any real benefit to bypassing the manifold. The reason I did it was my muffler was long rusted away when I got the tractor so I took the 2 flanges that were left and welded 2 90s to them and stuck those small tractor mufflers on as I couldn't find a reasonably priced original muffler.
