hey guys , another question for u all.... I have a plow blade for my 1966 model l 6.6...having issues with being able to angle it either way left or right.... the bolt on part that covers the pto that the plow  gets attached to with a single bolt and a pin for the straight or left/right angle has an outer sleeve over it.....with the sleeve on , I am unable to angle it either way , it hits the back of the plow.....if the sleeve is off , I have the clearance to angle it ....is this normal? or am I missing something? there also seems to be quite a bit of space between the post and the upper and lower brackets on the plow blade even with the sleeve on ...a little more so with it off.....any insight would be greatly appreciated ...thanks

I think you need to post some pictures of what you're talking about. I'm pretty familiar with the plow you have but I'm having a hard time picturing what you're describing.

Now I understand. I have the exact same mount as you do and I hate tell you this but the sleeve you have is wrong. It looks like it was made from a piece of pipe. It should be cast iron. You need to find the outer piece in order for it to work like it should.

Here's mine.

I agree that finding the cast piece looks to be best, but I'm wondering if it couldn't be Fabb'd close enough with some spacers on the outside of that pipe.

It would take some close dimensionals, but I would think that it could be done.

If it were me, I would try to fab it so I could use it while looking for the right piece.

I have never seen this before, but my thought was the pivot hole on the round tube was worn to the point the blade weight made it out of alignment.

As others have said, cast iron piece is needed.

Jayvest,

Until you find the cast piece you can make what you have work real easy. Slide the pipe onto the plow mount and make sure it is exactly even with the end of the mount, if not then grind the pipe back until it is. That will let the plow swing left or right like it's supposed to.

You can make up the gap difference with washers.

There is a gravely dealer/vender in Warwick New York who would probably have what you're looking for or could get it. His name is Paul Hanson, his phone number is 845-986-0910. He doesn't have a website. I've bought from him a few times and driven from my home in R.I. to his for large items 3 hours one way. Very nice guy.
