IH-100 Scraper Blade Pivot

Postby BadgerCub9361 » Wed Mar 29, 2017 4:52 pm

I recently acquired an IH-100 scraper blade that has been outside and unused for some time. I assume the blade pivots on the pin/bar that attaches to the fast hitch, but have not been able to move the bar from perpendicular to the blade. Every picture I have been able to find shows the blade set at the perpendicular setting so I am beginning to doubt my initial assumption. Is the blade designed to pivot? Any tricks to loosening a stuck pivot? A peek at the IH-100 manual might answer my first question, but I'm too new to the forum to access the manuals. Any help will be appreciated.

Any tricks to loosening a stuck pivot? Try your favorite penetrating oil and give it plenty of time to soak in. I'm talking days, here. The judicious application of some heat may help, also.

Thanks for the quick response. I've been applying penetrating oil for the past 4-5 days without success so far. I'll give it awhile longer before I resort to heat, but think that might soften up any grease that has solidified in the pivot cylinder. Thanks again.

If you want to get it freed up in any reasonable amount of time you're going to have to use heat. Oxygen-acetylene preferably, to get the BTUs. A regular propane torch won't get things up to temperature quickly enough, if ever.
