Good day,
I purchased yesterday the first attachment for my '85 448, a J-54-77 utility blade. This blade did not come with the adapter plate for attaching the lift arm to the tractor lift lever. What's the best source for obtaining an adapter plate? Did I read somewhere on this forum that one of the members may make the adapter plates for sale, or by any chance is the spec/pattern available that would enable me to make my own or have one made?
I also assume that the part is available from one of our member Ingersoll dealers.

Thanks in advance for any info.

Mike

Mike, find out what one would cost to buy it new and then let me know. If its a lot of money then I will pull my plate off my tractor and use it to make a duplicate for you. I may have the material here. If not then it will only cost you the amount of the steel I need to buy. I have a Bridgeport here so it wont take me long to put a handful of holes in the steel.

While that is a generous offer, my guess is a stop at a local welding shop would yield an appropriate piece of steel from the scrap pile for little or no money. I'd estimate about 10 minutes on the drill press to make the necessary holes. Shipping costs will likely exceed the material/labor cost.

I know there was a diagram of the piece with all the measurements on the yahoo group but I don't know if one has been posted here.

Add a lathe and I`ll live in your garage...
I put that on my Xmas list. Only problem is that the lathe I want is bigger then the door it needs to go through to get in the shop.

Mike, if you can find a drawing that has all the proper locations for the holes then yes, it will be a lot cheaper then having me do it for you and shipping it to you. If you cant find a drawing of it then I can try to send you a piece of cardboard with the hole locations on it so you can copy it

not to beat a dead horse with my first post but could someone, in fact, post the specs or a schematic of the adapter plate? i just purchased a UB54 without the lift bar or adapter plate. the bar is easy. the plate, however, seems to require a point in the right direction. any help would be much appreciated.

Wow, that's a totally different plate! :shock: Is it tagged with the same number? Maybe Case or Ingersoll made a change along the way. My (wider) one is only a year old as the PO lost the original; I purchased it from Brian last winter.
This just occurred to me: does the sleeve hitch use the same plate as the blade? I just went to look but didn't see a parts manual for a sleeve hitch.

You won't see a Parts Manual for a Sleeve Hitch nor will you see a Parts Manual for a 3 pt. hitch. That's because these items, along with rear PTO's, Flow Control Valves, Wheel Weights and Weight Boxes are included with the Parts Manuals for the tractors. If you look on Page 60 of this manual, you will see the rectangular adapter plate that Donkman shows in his diagram. There is another version of that plate that has one of the lower corners of the plate 45'd off. That plate is shown in the other diagram. All told, I think that there are 3 different versions of the adapter plate.

If you consult the OP Manual section under Sleeve Hitches, this book http://www.manuals.casecoltingersoll.co ... marked.pdf explains some things about the plates.
