snow blade on '48 Cub

Postby Rmankty » Fri Feb 07, 2014 10:23 am

Hello! I own a '48 Cub given to me by my Dad,He also bought a new '57,and I have the blade for that year on my '48. There is a hardened steel bolt-partially threaded that connects blade parts underneath front axle and pivot arm(to raise and lower blade) to the tractors frame.It runs through two steel blocks inside this area of tractor frame or housing,just behind front axle. Does anyone have links or specs on this bolt-its over 1 ft long maybe 3/4 diameter just eyeball estimate. Mine sheared in two pieces yesterday,didnt hit anything,jusr turned to left to put snow up off drive and it broke in two.

Here you go...

Yours probably sheared because it was loose or did not have all of the required parts, like the bushing. Check this out... ... index.html

What is the 1 19/32" lifting lever spacer bushing mentioned on page 5 of the 54A manual? I ask because I am not sure I have this part on my 54A.

I believe what you are asking about is the bushing in this lift arm (top center of photo) that the long bolt goes through. It allows the arm to pivot and not bind when the bolt is tightened down. They can be made from a piece of black pipe.

Here is the part catalog page that shows it (8). It should be long enough for the bolt to tighten down and squeeze the axle hanger bracket (4) against it without the lifting lever (7) binding. It should have a large enough ID to slip on the bolt and the largest OD that will slip freely into the lifting lever.
