Grader Blade parts

Getting ready to mount my L-54 blade on my lobby? As near as I can tell the PO did not give me the axle hanger bolt spacer? Are these hard to come by or are they universal for attaching other implements/attachments? Can the L-54 be mounted on a lobby or does it have to go on an F-Cub?? Snow w/be here before we know it - got to get ready!! LOL !! Dusty B

Dusty:

The L54 is for the Lo-Boy. Although it can be used on the FCub, it is designed for the Lo-Boy.

As far as the axle hanger bolt spacer blocks it appears from the pictures from TM ..

I assume that the blocks are identical to the Cub-54 blocks which are available from Tom and Lynn - axle hanger bolt spacer

OK ! Thanks Rudi - w/make one more check around the shed and then probably have to order one because that seems to be the part I'm missing! Thanks for the clarification! Dusty B

Mine was missing one. Made a copy from square stock and got a new bolt from Fastenal.

Made a set (great neighbor) from square stock also. Put a 1/4" chamfer on one corner. Works great.

You'll need two, Dusty. One at each end of the channel in the bolster for balance.

The PO of my Cub 54 fabricated this instead of using the blocks. It slips snuggly through the bolster and holds the bolt just fine. Though I have been using the blade this way, I do plan on getting the block when I have a few extra spending dollars.

BTW, iffin you have access or a friend with a lathe, you can use a 7 or 8 inch piece of stock and make a solid piece to go in the bolster. Drill half way in from both ends. I have a piece, just haven't had it drilled yet.
