I would recommend against attaching anything to the axles. I would suggest using something like this Wagner loader mounting bracket on the front to hang a simple U shaped sub-frame on the front axle support. Run the arms on that sub-frame to the rear axles or one of the Ford provided bolt up points on the underside of the transmission/center section. Make the frame out of 3/16" wall rectangular steel tube and you will have a solid fixed box frame that will hold up the world with no fear of bending. Weld a couple of pins/brackets on the sub-frame as attachment points for the OEM lift arms that are already on the plow.
I wouldn't mess with electric anything on an NAA. Aside from the high cost of an electric power unit the NAA electrical system is woefully inadequate. You have plenty of nearly free hydraulic power available straight from the tractor. Plumb a directional control valve, cylinder(s) and some hose and fittings into the tractor hydraulic system and you are good to go. Use quick connects for the plow hydraulic lines and you also have general purpose hydraulic remotes for other uses.
I have an older 6-1/2' Myers plow that will be going on my 8N using that exact scheme andteh setup -n the pictures "when I get the time". I've done quite a few hydraulic add-ons for the N-series and NAA - give me a call if you'd like some more thoughts.
