60" plow/grader

Postby cub.bub » Thu Dec 03, 2015 7:08 am

While mounting my blade I noticed an R stamped on one of the mounting brackets that run from the plow frame to the torque tube mounting plate. I assumed this meant right side from the seat? But after mounting and testing I noticed the left tire is 1-1/2" (approx) closer to the blade than the right side, now I know that one bracket is longer than the other, but does the "R" mean right side mount from front of tractor or seat?
Thanks, Bruce.

I don't understand this. I'm not sure what you mean by left/right side of seat. Setup should look like this:

Any IH reference to left/right would be from the operator's seat. But I've never noticed an "R" stamped onto those parts. I suspect the mark could have been put in by a previous owner. In that case, it could mean anything. If installing the brackets one way puts a twist in the frame and mounting them the other way squares it up, put them the way that squares it up.

Mike,
I'm sorry I wasn't clear, I'm referring to "sitting in seat" my 60 A has the two mounting brackets that run from the blades frame to the mounting plate on torque tube just like yours, one of which is stamped with a R, that is a little longer than the other, when sitting in the seat it would be on the right side of the tractor OR when looking at it from the front, heck now I'm confused :lol:
My point is that my blade is about 1-1/2" closer to the tire than the other side which would be a problem while turning with the shoes on the blade. So I'm thinking of switching the two mounting bracket to shift the whole thing over a bit due to the longer mount bracket. This might even give me more clearance for the lift rod and shroud, which is probably why you have a chain to keep it from hitting yours.
I didn't know if someone may have run into this before or not?

Thanks, Bruce.

Do the two bracket attach to a single torque tube mounted plate? I had to swap the left and right brackets because it didn't fit right. What I'm still unsure about it how the blade is closer to one tire than the other. Sorry, Id need to see a picture, its not your fault I just suck at visualizing lol. And yeah I have a chain on there to pull the rod away from the shroud because the slop/play causes it to rub into the shroud. I need to get a stronger chain and stiffer spring tho

If you have a unit that the brackets mount to different places on the torque tube rather than to a single bracket, the longer one would go in the rear mounting torque tube hole.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

I'm thinking like Jim, I saw the R and assumed mount from the seat, I only have about 1/4" between the lift bar and shroud. So I'm going to switch them around thinking it may move the carriage enough to allow more clearance, I would feel much better that way. The way it is presently mounted it looks square with the world, but when i put a tape measure to her I'm over an inch different on distance from blade to tire, and I really don't want to remove the shoes if I can help it. I will follow up with what I learn and take pics as I go.
Thanks to you all.
Bruce.

Jim, Mike,
I went ahead and removed mounting brackets and switched. I have attached a few pics of the "stamped" RH on one of the brackets along with a before and after pic. After all was done I gained about an inch clearance between the lift and shroud.
After the angle blade mod on the 140 and the cub we're all dressed up and NO snow to plow! :lol:
