I got the snowplow on my 8n. Found out the subframe needs to be tilted to install as the pins are so da-gone wide. But...it fits. I see the front cable i-bolts are weled to the front brackets and upside...not even the part. I"ll cut the weld and get the correct stuff from fleet farm. I am also going to change out the cable/chain with new cable and DOUBLE cable clamps. Right now the plow comes up about 1.5" short of where it should be.

Big question here...I am wondering if the lift arm upper "bycycle handlebars" are even correct. The original photo that was posted of the parts diagram shows that both ends should be "in line" and these are hardly in line.

Took it out to the field and 3/4 of a rather large rock was buried in the field. A little 1st gear and upward movement pushed it right out of the ground. I took the front blade off now. Oh, the front blade rocks ALOT with the blade lifted. Does anyone know if that is normal or should I weld a block of steel on each side so it takes some of that away?

A little harder to steer but I think I am going to really like this setup.

One more thing...the engine was cutting out here and there. Was going up a rather large hill and she puttered out. Got it back home and set the base timing. It was really off but is now set correctly. What a difference that made!

award, would adjusting your box leveler down on the right lift arm make the cross bar "inline"? I ain't the brightest lamp in the house but the right lift arm looks higher than the left. Another question is the tow bar hanger in the way of the cross bar being inline? In the pic the cross bar does not look level and it looks like it may be resting on the tow bar.

I'm not sure I understand what I am seeing.

Sorry not much help here.

larry, i adjusted the box leveler later. it's as far up as it will go now and to almost touching the crossbar. the left arm is what lifts (by itself) with about an eighth inch gap on the right side arm. I have the middle of the cross bar down now as i think it was intended which would make the lift arms stay towards the outside.

my issue is that the two ends are not in-line with each other whether the bar is on or off the tractor.

so the million dollar question is should the two ends be in line with each other as it is a b^&&% to get the bar installed.

I had one of these front blades many years ago that we bought new, so I know what it should look like and how it worked before modification or damage.
The "cross-bar" you have is correct; when new it did not seem to be straight! I never understood why it was bent in the shape it was, either.
The lift arms, through which the cross bar connects, should be parallel. Either your right one is bent upward or left is bent downward.....you decide and straighten the assembly where-ever it is bent out of shape. Once you straighten that, the tractor lift arms should be adjusted to parallel also, to pull equally upward on the blade lift arms that pull on the cables.
