Now I see what I need for the most part. Thanks for the pics and yes I'll add the 54/56 blade to the title.

I have figured out what I will do for the bottom of the blade. Hard to explain so will do pics as I am rebuilding that part. Should work just fine. Hope to get back to this soon.

Hard to explain, but this will attach at the bottom for the 'cutting edge' to bolt to. It's 1.25" X .1875" strap at an angle. Really 1.125" tall. Be a while before this is welded in as I have to even up the bottom edge to do that.

It should work. Won't be buying JD replacement parts though!

I got the blade up on sawhorses (heavy sucker) and put a line where I needed to trim it.

Fired up the cutting wheel and went to work.

Once it was trimmed, I made a v-groove between the blade and support. Clamped it together and welded that up. Had plenty of debris to clean out first.

Got that smoothed back down.

Today is fitting the new part for welding.

Looks like you are giving it some long overdue love and attention - going to be a "heavier sucker" when you are done though so please be careful when you set it back down with gravities help.

Only light showers today, so I tackled this again. Got the 'new' parts tacked in place.

Welded the back solid then laid it down to do the front seam.

After the grinder and flap wheel:

No pics, but yesterday I used a flap disc on the front side to clean most of the rust off and gave it a coat of Rust Reformer. About ready to put it together and figure out the mount for the lift cylinder. I'll bring my new trailer up to set the tractor and plow on for mocking that all up. There will be pics for all that.

I used the new trailer for a good flat surface to finish up the blade lift. Worked real good.

Allowed me to get things going in the right direction.

Found the measurements I needed and got the lift cylinder mounted. I have 7.5" of lift.

Here's the upper mount.

Nice work Kenny. That looks like it'll work well. Good timing in getting that about done now so you're prepared before needed. 👌

We usually don't get enough to mess with. Temps warm up and melt most of it.
