I got the snowplow on my 8n. Found out the subframe needs to be tilted to install as the pins are so da-gone wide. But...it fits. I see the front cable i-bolts are weled to the front brackets and upside...not even the part. I"ll cut the weld and get the correct stuff from fleet farm. I am also going to change out the cable/chain with new cable and DOUBLE cable clamps. Right now the plow comes up about 1.5" short of where it should be.
Big question here...I am wondering if the lift arm upper "bycycle handlebars" are even correct. The original photo that was posted of the parts diagram shows that both ends should be "in line" and these are hardly in line.
Took it out to the field and 3/4 of a rather large rock was buried in the field. A little 1st gear and upward movement pushed it right out of the ground. I took the front blade off now. Oh, the front blade rocks ALOT with the blade lifted. Does anyone know if that is normal or should I weld a block of steel on each side so it takes some of that away?
A little harder to steer but I think I am going to really like this setup.
One more thing...the engine was cutting out here and there. Was going up a rather large hill and she puttered out. Got it back home and set the base timing. It was really off but is now set correctly. What a difference that made!
