Buy a 7'.
6' will not clear your rear tires when you have it angled.

Except the 7' your lift links are not long enough to let you swing the 7' blade around. Your tractor has the same lift arms as my 2N and the 7' will not rotate without taking it off, the 6' will and they will just clear the tires. The 7' I had for a 4100 series Ford (3 cylinder 4000 with 38" rear wheels and cat 2 lift and it would work good on it but it is just way too much blade for your tractor that is the approximatly same physical size as the 2N and the 601 is just a newer version of the NAA that I also had before the 4100 and you try putting a 7' blade on any of them and you will just have problems. Don't use the 7' any more, just keeping it because they are not worth enough to try to sell and as I have the cat 1 pins and it being able to be offset if I would decide I needed to I could bolt it to the ofset position and leave it up in air to just reach out and push off the top of the snow bank.

I don't know about a 7' swinging around. Might not.
I use an 8' back blade on my 3000 but the blade can be shifted to one side so I can still turn it around.
8' is just right otherwise.
Not sure about the 9/2/8Ns and Jubilees.
I do know that Ford changed the geometry of the 3 point linkage when they started the Hundred series. Not the same as the Ns and NAAs. Pretty sure the lift arms are longer on the later models.

That's a pretty good Danuser/dearborn blade, in the picture. Definitely the blade for a Ford.

On the later models 65 up (blue) they are longer but the 601 used the same arms as the first one did in 1939.
