I went to work on the 'arm' as JD calls it. This is what the lift cylinder hooks to. I noticed an issue with the 'pivot' not being correct. I could get a pin through one set of holes, but not the other.

I tried swapping the plates around, but matters got worse.

So I got out the redneck 'slot maker/hole enlongater'!

Elongated the offending holes and we have a winner.

Made up a pin for that situation. Works good.

Wire wheeled the rust off and got some semi-gloss black on things.

Good to see your progress! Glad my virtual measurement worked out "close enough" in reality.

Somehow I lost track of this thread. Looks like you've done a great job in fabricating that stuff, good work Kenny. $150 for that piece thru Deere is absurd too, crazy how much they want for things.

I have 2 other issues with this yet. One is the mount for the lift cylinder at the tractor. Other is the bottom of the blade, I think it has a bunch wore off it, no holes for mounting a cutting edge.

Hopefully someone has a blade to take pics of so I can see what needs built back.

I looked at your pictures on page one and boy it's a little hard to believe they wore it down much. You think it's possible that blade never used a wear edge.?..were there skids on it ?
I know I could be nuts..😉

Skids were wore down to nubs! So they took a bunch off the bottom!

Going off a educated guesstimate from my blade, there should be about 3/4 to a inch lip under the rolled section at the bottom of the blade, Someone did a real number on that one.

It's all but flush with the rolled section!

The cutting edge is about a inch and a half to two inches, standard Deere is two piece with the outer lower edges cut on a angle. There should be about ten to twelve small carriage bolts bolting the cutting edge to the lip under the rolled section.

This last picture is the cutting edge on the blade that came with my 317

They appear to be the same design. If you need more pictures of the 317 blade let me know and I will try to dig it out where I can get more and better pictures.

Yes, I would appreciate more pics, especially of the back side. That will give me an idea of how to fix mine.

If these don't cover your questions you will have to post pictures of the damage to yours so I can figure out what angles are best to serve your purposes.

  Might I suggest John Deere Blade be added to the thread title to make it easy for people to find with search functions.
