Hoping for some up close pics of how the blade mounts to the tractor, looks like the up down pivot point would be the bracket that shrouds the front PTO , also would like to see how the sub frame attaches to the rock shaft to employ the lift and lowering of the blade. I don't find anything in the manuals section.
I have a different mfg. NOS blade,pivot mount and subframe that I plan to modify to fit the Ford. Thanks in advance.

No help from here. Even NH doesn't show how the blade attaches to the tractor.

Real old Ford I had was just flat on front and the blade mount was just a big wide U-shaped metal that bolted flat to it for main pivot. Was big 1" I think bar thru it from side to side and went into blade pivot body assembly. Clear as mudd?   The lift arm was manual on side and had rod from it about halfway up and out to the lift arm on the blade. Darn thing clamped onto the lift arm with just a small U-bolt. This was stock set-up!  Think this was the lighter blade tho, and was another heavy one that went all the way back to the hitch spot on rear, not sure how front mounted on that one, might have just been those guides it slid up/down in?

Sounds like the one on my open side LGT......I prefer the light blade, lifts higher and is better for snow IMO

Hi everyone. I happened across this site and saw that someone was asking for helping with the mounting of a blade on the front. I'm attaching my video of my tractor after I did that.

 

Some history: I bought my 1st LGT 14D and it already had the controls on the rr fender for up/down and left/right angle. NO blade though. So I looked and looked and looked. I found one from a 1210 or 1215 (I can't remember) that was 8 hours away round trip. It was a 702C blade that surprisingly had the same up/down and angle connections (I heard the angle was an option). I got it home and did brainstorming. I had to change the ends on the Pioneer hose setup. That was the hardest part. I then found a steel supply place and went to them and they fabricated what I needed. 

 

The downfall: the bracket sits low to the ground even after I put 26" tires on the front and I think 12"'s on the front. I will probably go back and rework the bracket so that it follows the contour of the tractor and doesn't sit so low to the ground. I sometimes get hung up in my gravel driveway.

 

Here's the link:  

 

I own the following tractors: 2 Ford LGT 14D's, several Ford YT 16's, 2 Ford LGT 18H's, 2 Simplicities, an AC 811GT, grey body Craftsman,an old Sears SS12 and a few others.

 

I hope the link to my YouTube video helps.

Welcome!
I thought this was a new thread haha.
I’m glad you posted the video. Can’t get enough of the Ford tractor videos.

I’m still looking for a factory front blade setup.
Already have the subframe, which is how the blade utilized the tractors hydraulics.
