Hi, I am a new member and owner of a Ford 140 and a newer Jacobsen Trip Dozer Blade (or at least I was told it is a Jacobsen- originally orange painted black).
I have it in place to mount, but am having trouble visualizing how the electric lift is supposed to connect and lift the heavy blade.
I have seen pictures of the Ford blade, and they have a rod through the arm where the manual lift arm would have gone. This one has no rod or hole for a rod to go through.
I can modify it and make parts, but pictures of blades actually mounted, measurements, and diagrams would be helpful.
I've gone through the manuals and did not find any diagrams that are helpful.
I do not want to mount a winch to the front or revise a homemade lift system, I would like to use the actuator itself, since I plan eventually to convert this to hydraulics.
I have attached a picture of how it sits. I know how the actuator mounts. I took it off for easier access.
