Drawbar must be turned so that it faces forward, but in the rear set of holes in the finals. Do not move it to the front set of holes in the finals. There are manuals depicting this in the PDF manuals area of the site. Here's a screenshot of the blade in the grader position.

Or you can use a substitute draw bar to accomplish the same thing. TM Tractor has pics under "how to hook up implements" on the left side menu.

Here's a short video I did while mine was belly mounted. Note, I'm using a substitute draw bar to mount it to instead of reversing the draw bar.

Here's a couple of videos of my '53 grading new gravel on our church's driveway.

Bill,

According to Mapquest you are about a two hour drive from a very good CubFest in Oxford, NY. Unfortunately, you will have to wait until next October to participate. Definately worth the trip, I drive a bit over six to get there. Put it on your calendar now, October 11-13, 2019.

Here are a couple of articles that explain CubFests:
