Sloppy plow blade.. Manual lift.

Recommended Posts

On my 7012h, my dozer blade has quite a bit of slop to all the of it's positions. Is this normal.?.? I have added a spacer(nylon,and steel.) Used barn door hardware through hole where pin usually goes, that to out the slop but you needed a wrench to change positions. no good, Finally went and got a new pin (a little wider, and brand new of course.) That helped a little but still a lot of play. Any tricks you huys use that I'm not thinking of, or just the nature of the beast. I have to say the plow works great the slop just bangs a round to much and is a little annoying?

Mines all over the place too. It works great though. I do have a crack in one of the supports that I am sure will break someday but there's not much that I can do. Just fix it when it breaks.

If it's a 3 position manual angle, put a big C-clamp around where the 3 holes are and squeeze the bracket together till the blade pivots a little stiff, then tighten down the pivot bolt pretty tight. When you take the C clamp off it will loosen up a bit and pivot nice, but will take out a lot of the play. :D Rather than using a pin, hard to get ahold of with heavy gloves, I use an old garage door roller for that pin. The wheel is easy to grab with gloves and I think the shaft is a bit larger than nominal pin sizes.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
