Hello Ford Lovers!!!
I managed to take additional photos of the tractor, the hydraulic lift mechanism and the dry fitting of the plow setup.
I plan on welding the two class one tow hitch bars to the front of the frame and mount the piston lift on a cross member (using the upper parts of the tow hitch bars) that will raise the plow using the existing fender mounted control.
Let me know if you think I need to install a support that runs from the rear hitch to the front frame mount.
My opinion is that the front frame plate is strong enough.
