Interesting topic. My blade, purchased well used in the early 1960's, is difficult to identify precisely as the previous owner had done some modifications apparently because of failures of original parts of the lifting system. For many years, I assumed that it was all original. It works but not well. I now suspect that this blade is the earliest one offered for the Cub.
Dimensioned drawings would be welcomed. Creating them would require considerable time.

I volunteered at one point, but life got in my way with dealing with my mother's estate and so much more. I think to make it less daunting, any volunteers should pick a part and we can do them one at a time with no overlap. Now I am out of work, but I am spending my time clearing snow, rebuilding a couple of hydraulic systems, and as soon as the weather breaks, I will be making regular trips to visit my sister in Canada. I sent Frenchy that photo and as it happens, I just had those parts painted white along with the hood of the tractor that is hydraulic project 1. They were blasted almost 2 years ago- so long ago I had to touch them all up. The blade and front spring assembly is buried under about 3-4 feet of snow drifts on the North side of my barn so I will not see those parts in some time.

I will work on the top weldment. This is the last version of the blade in near original condition (with lousy IH white paint) with decals. Anyone that wants to help, should be working with the same model so we don't confuse the issue.

There are more parts than these, but lets get this group done first so Frenchy can start fabricating. Hope you have some hefty tooling. This 5/8" stock will be tough to bend. I plan on doing everything in inch measurements even though Frenchy will likely be working with metric-sized stock.

Very tedious work without CAD and CAD training. Can't do these all at once! Right click and select "view image" to see the full size.

Windows 7

I am going to work with Dennis to set up a folder with pdfs of all the parts that get sketched.

Rudi has drawings here, but all I get are 404's when I try the links in Firefox. Use Internet Explorer, that works. http://www.cleancomputes.com/Cub/Sketches%20or%20Plans/index.html

Try Rudi Oblak's files and John Puckett's bell crank (also drawn in Rudy's section, but John's shows the assembly)

Dimensioned drawings for most of those blades are available and have been for a very long time. Rudy Oblak, Chad Penny, John Puckett and others have provided .dwg's,.jpg's and .bmp's. They have been on the server for at least 6 or 8 years.

There are some parts that have been annotated as well on original parts diagrams .. check the archives.

Freddy -- I emailed you all of what we have on the server and what I have privately. If there is a specific part you need dimensioned .. just let us know. If you are having difficulty with a dwg, again just query - somebody will be able to take a pic or answer the question.

Have fun making the blade.

Rudi,
I don't think every blade part is diagramed, just a few of the common ones like the bell crank.

here is another. This is a handed part. I am pretty sure this is the left hand part. I'll do the other one next.

I changed the above photo. The dimensions of 14+" are very close. I am going to call the top one 14-1/4" and the one below 14-1/8" The only good way to measure was to measure the crease impression on the inside of both bends. They may actually are supposed to be the same, they are pretty close. The angles and squared ends are clearly different.

They are 2 different part numbers.

I was talking about the center dimension only. The part numbers are noted on the photos, but I did need to guess which was which part on the slight differences in the parts book.
