First thing you MUST have sway bars on both sides, withoyt them you are likely to bend the lift arms if not break something even with that 6' blade and with them it will handle your problem better than a 7' blade without them. And a 7' blade is just too much load for any N series Ford, I have 9N & 2N. Some blades you can bolt the blade to an offset position and if it does not have that provision just move the blade left holes to right in bracket and drill new holes in blade. But thenyou will need to have at least a 6:00x16 tire filled with fluid, not the standard 4x19" tire as that size blade will do nothing but pull you into the snow bank that you are now driving in. I have bent many a lift arm over the years, Did a bit of grading 2 evenings ago with my 7' blade and did not have the stabilizer bars on and was afraid was going to bend lift arm I had just put on. By 4000 with13.6x38 rear and 7:50x16 front and twice the power of the N could not have handled my 7' blade in the offset position. So first thing is get those stabilizer bars on and try it.

If you ange it a little less it will cut a bit wider and it won?t slide the front of the tractor as much either .

I've had Ns, Hundred and Thousand Series Fords.
Ive Never used sway bars on anything.
Except, I tried them on my 3000 for a short time with a real heavy Bush Hog.
They made the tractor/mower one long solid unit with No flex between the tractor and mower.
I bought the sway bars new, used them a couple of times and now they've been hanging in the shed for a few years.
Waste of money imo.

For like that bush hog that has NO sidedraft then you do not want them. Now with something with a lot of side draft that your mower did not have then you need them so the blade side draft is not trying to bend that lift arm just in mack of the limiter chain from all the side draft pull. Your mower automaticly stayed centering behind tractor, a blade does not do that. and by pulling off to the side like it does without the extra bars it looses a foot of cut with the blade. I just had my 7' blade on my 2N that is just an earlier version of his 8N and that 7' blade without that bar and if you only have one put it on side of blade with the front part of the angle. Left side to push to right, right side if pushing snoe to left. With one bar it will stand more that way but best is on both sides. My 7' blade without the extra bar did not reach out as far as toe outside of the tire, now the 6' with those bars will reach out to just the outside edge of the tire.

A metal shop will be able to bend a piece of metal that matches the curve of your blade then you could just bolt it on to right hand side of the blade

Why don't you just lengthen the LH brace arm from draft bar to the swing/boom arm and shorten the RH brace arm?? It does not appear to be a welded assy., but if it is forget my suggestion.
That will offset the whole blade to the Right.

Those blades really aren't made for snow, they don't work very well. Fine for smoothing a driveway of making a small ditch. I have a 7 foot and I put it on in the winter mostly for weight, I use the FEL for the snow, maybe use the blade to smooth things up when I'm done.

Pushing when the snow gets that deep works a lot better anyway and I spend ten hour days going backwards moving snow and you wil get a lot more done that way than trying to pull it

If youdon't already have them look on this site and order a set of stabilizer bars and brackets and use them, you will see more of a difference than going from a 6' blade to a 7' blade and do it easier on the tractor. You just need a half inch longer fender bolt to put them on.
