grader blade question

Postby tst » Sat Nov 24, 2012 11:06 am

Hi all, I have a model 54 snowplow/grader blade that is missing the round rod that goes from the rockshaft down to pivot arm, would some one have one that they could measure the lenght so I can make one?, you can see the round rod in this picture from TM tractor
thanks Tim

If function before fashion isn't a problem, and you plan on doing more grading work than snow removal, you may want to add a 1" piece of angle iron down the length of the rod to reinforce it from bending.
