I just picked up this UB54-1 utility blade for $200. Good thing was it was only 5 minutes from my house. My other blade has seen better days and it is the small blade. THis should work out a lot better in my drivway now that I have more power under the hood.

Great find!! Your 14hp should push that with no problem at all. So, when are you going to do a power angle mod??? :smile:
Way too many projects on my plate right now. That may wait for the summer. Oh wait, I have my summer projects list filled out already. Once I can get some info on it , I will start gathering parts.

Exact same one as mine, did you get the adapter plate with it? Damn thing is expensive, but quite easily made yourself if you have one to copy (which I didn't).

Wow that power angle looks sweet. I bet that's handy when you're just a little bit stuck and need to push yourself back from the snow bank.

Adapter plate? I dont know. Here is a fee more pics of it. I am not sure if my problem is a bent frame or the hinge pins are worn out but the blade will never sit level unless I force it down. My other blade does the same thing so Im guessing it has something to do with the mounting points.

If that bend is anywhere near as bad as it looks, the whole blade could be twisted which would explain it not sitting on the ground evenly. I hope it turns out to just be an optical illusion.

The tractor looks great Brad....now get out the persuader (sledge hammer) and stighten out that blade! :sidelaugh:
The BFH is ready to go but the dent isnt as bad as it looks in the pics. My smaller blade has the same axact problem when mounted on the tractor so I dont think it is the new blade I just picked up. Should there be any play in the mule drive pins on the frame and the mule drive itself when mounted? I can move the mule drive around a little bit once the plow is mounted up. I may swap the pins out for something else when the weather warms up and see if it helps

Brad,

Someone else asked about the mounting plate you are using....I did not see you answer that question. If you mounted a blade without the plate it would surely twist it because of uneeded pressure. Not sure if it is even possible to mount the blade without the plate????

It is a bit hard to see in this photo but it is the square plate near the bottom. #26

Adapter plate, #26 in this pic from the parts manual


If I had realized you already had another blade I wouldn't have asked, because that means you already have at least 1 of them.

Update: GC types faster than I do :grin:

haha, yes I already have the plate. The snowcaster does the same thing so I know its the mounts. I have to replace pins with something else or just get new pins from Brian. I should have done that when I did the restore but I overlooked it

well I just got in from the garage from putting the snowcaster one and the friggen things does the same things as the plow. I thought maybe just maybe it was the mule drive on ther plows but now its 100% something on the frame. If I force the LH side of the attachment down so it sits flush with the ground then the entire tractor lean over to the left. There is no play in the mule drive mounting points. I guess the only thing left at this point is taking some measrements and see if they are same for both sides.
