Leveling and grading blade questions

Postby staninlowerAL » Sat Jan 15, 2022 1:25 pm

OK, here's the problem--missing parts so I'm trying to determine if the old style (48) complete mounting frame and blade as shown in the Original manual/parts list would mount up to the wishbone/yoke of the 54 blade (a lot easier to fab with less angles and bends). Front axle hanger is the same length. Probably be some adjustments to the lifting linkages but it looks doable from studying the drawings. If the short answer is yes then would a L54 wishbone/yoke complete assembly work also with the old style (48) complete mounting frame and blade with the necessary adjustments made for the lifting linkage? :?:
I know, anything is possible given enough time and money. :thanx: Stan

Well I didn't find the answer to my original problem but I did discover what parts are different from a standard cub when mounting the blade on a Loboy: from BS-1 PARTS CATALOGUE BLADES Part reference # 3, 4, 7.

Thanks, Don. This is the sort of things that I think about at midnight when I can't get to sleep!!!! The offset brace, ref. #3 would probably be a challenge without some accurate measurements. I think the other parts would not be too difficult. I would like to see if I can make this work sometime and swap my blade on to my loboy.
