Leveling and grader blade

Postby spaceghost » Wed Oct 06, 2004 8:11 pm

I installed a grader blade on the front of my 1957 lo-boy.
I bolted the blade to the front of the tractor using the original manual for the blade.
The whole job went together very well.
My tractor has hydraulic tough control

The problem I am having is that the hydraulics does not throw the arm of the blade enough to raise the blade.

On the hydraulic rockshaft, the L shaped lifting lever does not go forward enough.
The lifting lever moves form 10 o’clock to 2 o’clock.

Is there any way to adjust the rockshaft to throw the lifting lever more to the front of the tractor?
Or did I screw something up. The install looks the same in the book as it does on the tractor.

Which end of the L shaped bracket on the touch control rockshaft did you attach the lift arm to? I use a lo-boy blade on a standard cub and I had to attach the lift arm to the opposite end of the bracket to get enough lift.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

Are you sure it is an L54 blade intended for a Lo boy? I'm not sure, but using a 54A blade for a regular cub on a Lo boy may cause that problem.
