I have an old 42" sears dozer blade. I did find the model number (917.99550) but doing google searches only finds a basic parts list and a very rough teardown image. I would like to know what the year is and if I can find a full manual. I have it attached to my 1966 custom 6 for plowing snow. The bevel adjustment bar is broken and it appears that the skid plates are missing.

You can see in this image how the bevel bar is tipped over.

EDIT: Scroll to bottom for solution. Its missing parts, is slightly modified, and for some reason has an incorrect tag.

Something ain't right here as Sears parts says that is a 'snowthrower'. Hmmmmmmmmm?

 

 

Look here for the 917.253330 Sears Snow Blade. Looks very similar to yours.

I don't see either kind of outrigger support.
Without them, you are almost guaranteed to damage your tractor. Steering sector will probably be the first casualty.

Let me see if I can find more inf and link it.

I would look thru this thread
http://gardentractor...ece/#entry27111
And download the manual listed on post 6

You should either have the short ones shown on page 4 of that manual or the long ones I built replicas of in the thread.

At the risk of being melodramatic, Don't move any more snow without one or the other as that ront axel is NOT designed to take all the stress.

That does look similar but it doesn't have the black front. I do have that blade rod shown in the manual but the blade doesn't have a hole for the rod. 

I found the same plow in an old ad.

Thanks for the warning. I won't continue to push snow with it until I find the parts needed. I probably shouldn't even be using this plow on a compact sears.

I wonder why the blade has an incorrect tag and an unusual pivot lock. It must of been modified and painted long time ago.

EDIT: I don't have these support brackets. Ill have to make a couple.

That sears will push more snow that you'll expect. I just want to make certain it doesn't let you down.
Building a set of the rods isn't hard (especially the short ones) and then you'll be back in the saddle.

If you think something is wonky with the plow, study the exploded view at the end of that manual... They never really changed all that much. Maybe it will shed a little light on the situation.

Yes you should. That plow was designed for that tractor and works very well. I have the same plow; only my lift handle is mounted on the other side. Could supply close up of the pivot rod attachment if needed. Can't tell from your pictures what is wrong. Something is not in the correct position or as you said been modified. 

 

No bars with the blower either? It requires them also. That was a nice write-up by MH81. Should be able to make some that will work with both. 

 

If you need measurements, let me know. I have both the long and the short ones. Long bars are currently on the tractor with the plow. Moved stuff around in the barn today to mount blower. Will be next week before that happens though.

No bars for the blower either. I won't be using the blower anytime soon though. I need to find the pulley that goes on the motor. You can share the measurements if you want. I printed out @MH81's instructions.

Well I was mistaken. Since I have yet to mount the snow blower on the ST/10 (same as Custom), I failed to realize the short and long support bars were different. The blower mount at the axle is in a different configuration than the plow; thus, bar end is also different. Short blower bar is 27 1/4" overall length, 1/2" rod with flattened end for tractor and 'L' shape on other with hole for pin.

 

Pictures:

Front pivot mount:

Remember yours should be opposite of mine. (lift handle on other side of tractor)

 

IMG_1872.JPG IMG_1893.JPG

 

Short bars should be easy to make when its time to mount the blower. MH81 gave good detail on the longer bars.

 

Good luck and don't get discouraged with finding that blower pulley. 

 

Brian

I got more pictures of the pivot / bevel adjustment bar. Its a vertical bar instead the horizontal. I need to buy a couple meters of flat metal bars to make the supports.

That looks factory. Wonder if it should be bent over to the side? That bottom pin has me scratching my head. Does it go all the way across into another hole?

Yep it does reach over to the other side but isn't long enough to attach an e-clip to that side. The bar might be bent a bit or both outer e-clips should in the inside of the frame.

Would it be ok If I was to build a support frame out of 2x4 for the time being? I can easily drill out holes for large bolts.
