I have the same setup with hydro. My slide has cotter pins that stop it from moving. Been like that for the last 28 years. Hydro float always worked for me

Is there a reason you inatalled the front part of the rod like that and not have the rod go on both sides of the bar? I think that would be the only improvement. Would be stronger too

The rod he is using is not the stock rod.  Someone at some point made this one.  The original should just be a simple 3/4" round rod that bolts to the hydraulic cylinder just as he shows and goes through the slide block on the blade.  Not the end of the world if you don't have a slide block.  Truth be told, when I plowed with this set up, I usually pinned the slide block fairly solid.  The float in the hydraulics should be all you need.  Nothing wrong with what you have.  If the blade lifts and lowers, you're good to go.

The beauty of this blade set up is that you can play with the linkage until you come up with something that works the way you want.  When I had mine, I made a longer rod and added 2" of material to the bar on the blade where the rod attaches.  By the time I had it the way I wanted it, the blade lifted 9" off the ground.  It was great!

I tried it and it looked like the fork was going to bind on the forward bar. The bar was on a bit of an angle between the two attachment points. Does the factory rod have an offset bent into it?

No, it's just a straight 3/4" rod.

Hi Roger, the lift rod is as posted .75" X 46" has 3 7/16" hole in the forward end the aft end has 8 3/16" holes spaced 1" apart, starting.5"  to 9.5" with a 6" X 1" spring and a slider attach bracket, forward holes are 5.5"  3.5" and .5" from the end. I'll post some pics. The forward end just has a 7/16" bolt thur the rod and the lift arm.

Great, that's just what I need to make one. Can you spec. that slide block for me also? The rod I have works but I'd like to eventually try to make it as stock as possible. (With the possible exception of the hydraulic blade angling, that looks pretty slick.)

 

Thanks, Roger

Hi Roger, the sliding block is   .75" thick X 1.5" wide X 1.75" long slide hole is .75" and the attach pin is 3/8", there is a grease fitting to lube the rod probably not totally needed.

I've made lift rods for mine with two Yokes, one each end. And YES, on mine it is slightly bent, but I also have a 24" tractor, so maybe higher? Think the orig are supposed to allow for a "Shock" resistance, but in most times I've had them, the spring just get's squished tight and is same as solid rod would be, never saw the real reason for the gizmo ends there.  If you had 3pt with upper side cylinder, it uses same rod there.

A friend of my son used it for a few hours yesterday until the right front tire went flat. He had a blast!
