So much for my confidence that the frame was not bent.

Well i thought an update was in order. I have been dismantling the grader blade, getting new bolts. i have sand blasted a few parts and used some good old fashioned rattlecan paint. It wont be the prettiest blade at the ball, but it will be a little nicer looking.

The biggest updates are to the new "pin" i made out of stainless. that should be good now for as long as i am around. it wasnt bad part to make, having a drill press helped alot.

The frame was a bit beyond my current capabilities and i enlisted the help of my father-in-law. He is a semi-retired millwright and still has access to a large industrial shop where he works part time. he took my old bent frame and used it as a template. I think the picture below speaks for itself.
I also acquired a new cutting edge from a local case-ih dealer.
