Is it possible to stick a front plow on a '55 ca? If so, then how? This would be used for light snow removal.

My dad has one, it uses a Power steering pump and a set of Farmall Cub loader valves for power. The frame is bolted to the torque tube - if you do this bolt to the torque tube, the front engine plate (there are a set of fore/aft holes to use) and the fender tubes, to help distribute the load. The torque tube won't break unless you're going way fast and hit something. This rig has been on the tractor for 15 years and we use it to move anything the tractor can move.

Be aware that carrying the blade out front puts a tremendous load on the axle. You will be replacing the bearings, spindle bushings, and probably the axle pivot bushing.

That's why a mid-mount or rear-mount blade is better - the load goes to the heavy bearings in th final drives.

Here's an idea - find an old cultivator set and mount the blade to the frame, just in front of the wheels.

Any form of front blade or loader that AC or other manufacturer ever made for the CA (or B, C D-10 or D-12) always carried the thrust loads back to the final drives. You risk breaking the narrow torque tube if you mount a plow or loader just to the front of the tractor.

there are two ways to do this Andrew. The first is to have a channel frame that bolts to each side of the motor and wraps around the radiator and is also supported by the front axle pivot. then you mount lift arms on the front of this frame and have a lift cylinder out front. The second way is to install a loader frame that connects to the rear axle and extends several feet forward past the radiator. You install cylinders by the motor clutch area, or by the rear axle. Now you can mount a bucket or a blade on the front. This would be a little more versatile. I am considering doing the same thing to a "C". IF it is a narrow front end, it is a lot simplier to "build" a lift frame from the rear axle straight down both sides of the tractor. I dont have ax exact picture, but i have seen a couple examples in the "photos". i will send you e-mail. again, not exact, but look how it mounts and what the guys did in each case. Biggest porblem on a B or C is lack of hydraulic capacity. the CA might have sufficient hydraulics. some guys install a hydraulic motor on the engine pulley or PTO shaft to get "more".
