Hi I recently got a for lgt 165 with a cat 0 3 point. It come with a back blade but it is quite narrow between the 3point arms and the upper link mount is really tall and forward of the lower mmounts. Was thinking that I had read somewhere that sears had a slightly different 3point. Any help will be aappreciated I'll post a pic in a little bit thanks Glen

Yes, Sears 3pt is narrower and the pins are smaller.
I can get you a pic of my back blade in a minute.
It's tempting to put them on there, but the angle of the arms and the smaller size is not how they were designed to work. Many of these attachments have been destroyed or damaged by getting in behind larger tractors.

If you were closer, I might grab it. I have the sleeve hitch version of this blade. That looks bent in the second picture. One thing you could do it you can fab/weld, is make a new piece for the 3-point side that would fit your Ford! Been contemplating doing that with mine.

No cutting of the original parts! Just take the part out with the 3-point piece and make a new one to replace it with you Cat 0 mount!

Here's what I am talking about! Remove the part circled in red and make a new one to Cat 0 specs!

Right I understand that would work. I just thought if I could find someone in search of a sears blade I'd rather sell it to them because they are odd and hard to find. When I can still go buy new blades and they can't.

You won't buy a new one as strong as that one!

someone will be interested, not rare but took me a year to find a straight one close.
Your pictures are more and think that yours may have been tweaked a little.
