Snap coupler blade question

for a Allis Chalmers snap coupler rear blade, are they all the same? I mean will they all fit any allis with the snap coupler system?
Also, that wheel on top of the balde. Is that for "tilting" the blade so that you may cut a drainage ditch?
Thanks a bunch

The handle is for tilting the blade to cut a ditch. There was also available a short angled cutting edge to bolt on either end to help when starting a cut. Eighteen inch extensions could be bolted on each end of the six foot blade to increase width to nine feet. End brackets bolted on to make it into a box blade.

I think both are half right! I think, don't know for sure that from the 4 bolts that hold the tongue on, back, they are the same. D series tongues are different from earlier ones, because the pto's are slightly different in location from the w series, necessitating the differences in the tongues.

No the blades are not all the same. One was made for the CA, D10 and D12 with the narrower lift arms. I had one that had two sets of holes in the top bar between the lift pins so that you could adjust it wide or narrow. I drilled out another blade that I had so that I could do the same with it. I also found that the blades had a different curve to the tongue....one blade would hit the pto housing if I lifted it up too far on a WD45 or D17. I'm not sure how one can tell the difference just by looking at them.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: Electronic Ignition - by Staff. Oil, for example has come a long way in the last 50 years and I don't use anything but the latest API grade available. I've heard the arguments for non-detergent oils but would never trade it for today's formulations. Paint is another, the modern acrylic enamels are great for resistance to grease and fuel stains, retaining their shine and they last forever; unlike enamels and lacquers . Still another is the alternator. No doubt using the original generator keeps the tractor pure, but for thos ... [Read Article]
