What model is yours and where would the tag originally have been?

Model is AD 456 I think - it's not completely clear. It's right behind the bracket that bolts to the front axle (I think! It's too dark out now to see!)
Ed Gooding posted the ARPS/Blackhawk manual on the N Board under manuals. The blade is designed to work off of the tractor hydraulics or with the Sherman backhoe.

I have this same blade and mounting system. I thought it was a good "home brew" with the pipe members. A few good things about its design is that it does not put the push forces on the front of the tractor, but all the way back to the rear end where the forward pushing forces are. The frame and blade can pivot separately from the tractor and front axle so the blade can follow the ground quite well. Mine has 2 springs for trip. The hydraulics were supplied by locking the 3 pt arms in a raised position and then the hydraulic fluid is taken from the test port on the bottom of the Hyd pump and sent up to a standard 2 way valve. Of course the lift action is slow with the 2 +/- gal per min pump capacity. Thus the somewhat small diameter hyd lift cylinder at the front. The lift cylinder should be attached to the blade frame with a short chain so the blade can "float" on the ground. I pushed a lot of snow with this in the 70's and also pushed a lot of dirt while building my house. It is a pretty tough system.
