Bolt size to attach front blade to frame of cub

Postby itpdk9 » Sun Jan 24, 2016 11:23 am

Hello all,
I have searched and I am sure it is here somewhere but I can't find it. What size bolt is it to attach the front blade to the frame of the cub below the hydraulics? There are two sets of holes tapped directly into the frame, I want to make sure I get the correct size. Thank you in advance...

Hi,
If you are attaching something to a Cub, and the area around the hole in the implement attaching part has a taper, it was made to use the special IH bolt. TM Tractor sells them, here is a listing below. They are used for the drawbar, and other implements. You might need longer bolts, depending on what you are attaching, Case IH dealers sell longer ones, the last I knew.
If your implement just has a regular hole for a bolt, and no taper, then use a regular bolt. :)

Thanks Glen, I appreciate it. I have the tapered bolts for the draw bar already. I picked up a few regular ones today at TSC. :thanx:

Hopefully you picked up some large flat washers and lock washers too.

You can usually compensate for the tapered bolts by clamping with the flat washers and using the lock washers to keep the bolt from backing out.

I don't think my snow plow brackets have tapered holes, though... Maybe it's a later (1966) thing.
