Hello,

Im trying to build a dozer blade for my 1976 pk 2414. would someone please give me the measurments from channel to center of round bar that connects to tractor how tall. Then on the front round piece that raises and lowers the blade what is the length from the round bar to the hole on the arm that is welded to the round bar for hyd lift and to lift channel? Hope this can be understood. THANKS for taking your time to answer.

Have a blade out in shed. Not sure I can dig out enough to see and measure, might try.  These are pretty common on ebay and at shows for around $150 or less, would think building will be a lot more $$.  Not sure what GA sources you might have tho. Florida flywheelers shows have swaps and run most of year if you are close for that?  I see them in pix there. jrhaines on epay is in PA and might have one and he gets around country at times and might meet you for a delivery?  Fatenal stores seem to be a place to ship at also. Between stores. The main frame is just a 2 x 6 or 8 channel and flat stock and tube welded on. Would need sizes and angles I guess. That must be what you are wanting then. There are two flat stocks running between the mounts and on rods you will also need to keep it all together once bolted up. You will also need those two small holder elements for the front mounting. They have the bolt hole for pinning to tractor and keeping if from sliding out of that front slot mount. You have a parts picture?  That would be helpful. Think there might be some I put on awhile ago in a listing in this forum if you check.  I can't post now, new puter and info on old one, and scanner not working on new I just found out.

Thanks glgrumpy. Yes I have several pictures and I have all the metal laying around the shop and a JD blade I'm retro fitting so all I will have in it is time. PKs around here are as common as a unicorn. just need those measurments to start fab have already built a ripper and working on a pull behind bush hog powered by 15 hp kohler

Well, pulled out blade and in to shop. Took bunch of pictures and tried to measure. What I have so far is mostly the mounting of the main channel out to blade. Figured that might be enough. Now wondering if the dimensions are diff on 16 or 24 models. I have had this on my 24 with no problems and used some. Maybe there is no difference? Gonna be a long post and wish I could draw some diagrams like on my papers, but don't know where to do that. Scanning I can't do at this time.

To start with main channel. 2 x 5" channel 36" long. 5/8 pivot hole about 3/4" centered from outer end. This is a guess on that, not apart.
On back of channel is angled 3/8" x 3 x 8-1/4 flat stock. About a 30* angle, best I can tell with tools had. I" bar goes thru that at about 2" from upper end, so not in middle as you can see in pix. I" rear bar about 13-1/4" long passes thru that flat stock sticking out 2" on each side. Welded tight. Spacers on that bar are 1" pipe 2-1/4" long and fit loosely. I've had to adjust that space depending on years of tractor to mount it to. Make bigger spacers or add washers or other things to fit at center of mount on frame.

Some smaller parts for front mount. two small straps 1/4 x 1 x 7-3/4 inch. 3/8" holes in ends and one 2-3/4 from one end, but that is not used and not sure what is for? Maybe part used on other blades? Two bigger straps to keep the rods spread out from front to rear on mounts. 1/4 x 1-1/2 x 13-1/4 long. 1" or bigger for loose fit, about centered 3/4" from ends. Only about 1/4" metal at ends to keep it on bars. Centers might be 3/8 to 1/2 " from ends, hard to tell for sure.

The rockshaft for the front mount is 1" rod 14-1/2" long, 1/8" plus holes in ends to put in hitch pins. There are two lift link arms of 3/8 x 1-1/2 x 4-1/2" with 1" holes for on the bar, welded, and 3/8" on other ends, about 5/8" from end for centers. These are placed 4" from bar ends and welded.
The lift lever is 90* from the other two and points down, but some later tractors had it up at angle. I think your year is down facing one. Can leave loose till you figure out lift bar placement I suppose. It is 3/8 x 1-1/2 x 6-3/8 long and is 2" in from the right side, welded to bar. That same shaft has three 3/8" holes for adjusting lift at 3/4 and 1-1/2 and 2-1/4 from the outer end.

That is all I have at moment. The pivot of blade and it's bump-flip on the deere might be all you need to adapt to this mount. I can take more pix and dimensions on that if needed, but figure this is what you wanted.

Forgot the small locks for front mount. 1/4" x 1-1/2 x 3" with big 1" hole and 3/8" bolt hole about 1/2" center from end. These are important and hole the whole rig up into the front mount and tractor. That slot is facing down and will not hold a thing w/out these parts. The rear slides in from front and is kinda held up there, long as the front stays up into front mount. Those two big flat parts keep it spaced out correctly. Pull these two small holders and it drops down in front and forward out of rear mounts and is all clear, cept the lift bar. The lift bar in pix I didn't measure. I took a stock one and had to adjust length to fit my modern plastic king at time and still worked on my 24" metal that way also, lucked out. There are a few diff lengths made.
