I store my blade together and folded against the wall.

I then lay it out with my small floor jack under the mounting frame.

I then roll the tractor back over it, raise the jack, align holes for the long bolt. After that's done I can simply attach the braces and lifting arms/rods. (Yeah mines an early blade, not a 54/54a)

I hope this helps others "cheat" , I been doing it this way for 20+ years, sure beats wrestling heavy parts.


Thanks! I'm sure others will find it helpful!

great idea, thanks. It is awkward to lift, align, etc and this will help

Unfortunately longer than that... went to put the blade on on Saturday, didn't get all the way through... realistically looking at 14" for anyone that needs to know...

I'm sure 12" is correct. You must be mounting something wrong.

Yes, using a 12" piece of allthread, came through the 2nd block and the first section of metal, that was it...

Are your support blocks fully seated in the steering casting?

Karl, Can you post some pictures? Maybe we can spot something that's out of whack.
Edit: The "U" shaped bracket that the lift arm goes through should be about 11" from outside edge to outside edge. That leaves an inch for the lock washer and nut.

Using 12" of all thread requires a nut or two and possibly a washer on the left side. A 12" bolt is measured from the face of the head. That may be why it is too short.

My initial thought as well, but that would mean that the distance needed would be much closer, in other words the width of the nut and washer. It is more than this. I'll try to get to this tonight for more information... otherwise it's just speculation
