Kenny, I found with my 54 blade if you put a 5-6" 4x4 block under and just ahead of the lift pivot pin, you can practically drive the tractor right up to the blade. I get the lower pins lined up on the frame hooks, hook up the lift cylinder lines, And then use the hydraulics to "rock" back the the mount till the upper pins line up. To take it off I do it in reverse order. It is the fast and easy way to do it.

You can always put an electric actuator on it until you get your additional hydro circuit for rotating angle.  Beats getting off the tractor to rotate that heavy sucker in the cold.

Just the other day, I picked up a 2-way hydro 54" blade for my 318. I still have the rear lift cylinder from another junk 316 that I parted out, so I will be fabricating the mounting brackets to mount the 2nd "angle" hydro cylinder on to it. I paid $275 for the blade.
