award, would adjusting your box leveler down on the right lift arm make the cross bar "inline"? I ain't the brightest lamp in the house but the right lift arm looks higher than the left. Another question is the tow bar hanger in the way of the cross bar being inline? In the pic the cross bar does not look level and it looks like it may be resting on the tow bar.

I'm not sure I understand what I am seeing.

Sorry not much help here.

larry, i adjusted the box leveler later. it's as far up as it will go now and to almost touching the crossbar. the left arm is what lifts (by itself) with about an eighth inch gap on the right side arm. I have the middle of the cross bar down now as i think it was intended which would make the lift arms stay towards the outside.

my issue is that the two ends are not in-line with each other whether the bar is on or off the tractor.

so the million dollar question is should the two ends be in line with each other as it is a b^&&% to get the bar installed.

I had one of these front blades many years ago that we bought new, so I know what it should look like and how it worked before modification or damage.
The "cross-bar" you have is correct; when new it did not seem to be straight! I never understood why it was bent in the shape it was, either.
The lift arms, through which the cross bar connects, should be parallel. Either your right one is bent upward or left is bent decide and straighten the assembly where-ever it is bent out of shape. Once you straighten that, the tractor lift arms should be adjusted to parallel also, to pull equally upward on the blade lift arms that pull on the cables.
