The front blade is for a FDT - it has the swept back lift arm. 

It's the 46" "adjust from the seat" 5 angle position version.  and you have the "angle rod" too (it's in the pic of the hitch), usually a part that's lost.  I'm not sure if the Simplicity 2010 predates the 46" blade's first appearance, but the blade is designed for that tractor.  There is also a 42" blade, with manual 3 position angle.

Seems like these blades are more difficult to find..It must have been an  optional blade with a 46" versus the 42" more common blade, the seat angle adjust, and the spring trip blade.   I just bought one in Michigan, and now need to get it home for my HB212.  Gonna be a backup snow machine next winter.

Nice looking machine. To me, the arm on the hitch looks like it's coming straight up which if so would indicate it's for an RBT rather than an FDT.  May just be the angle the picture was taken from.

That roller does appear to be Simplicity Jim. Good pkg pick!

It's the angle of the pic.  I'm almost positive it's the FDT hitch.  The later RBT hitch has an extra support bar running toward the blade:

(42" FDT Blade hitch in back).

Chris is correct- the hitch is early RBT (a few inches shorter and no extra diagonal brace.

Will still work fine.

the PO did say that this tractor was bought new  by his brother in portland oregon .when he passed on he got it and that is when  he got the blade new in 1978 . all of the paper work I got from him did have a attatchment book  for the 7000 seires

If your asking about the front blade, it will pin right up to the 7117.  

But check the lift arm clearance in the fully raised position - it might be too tight.  You should be able to adjust the spring end of the lift rod so that it won't lift high enough to interfere with the hood.

It will work fine otherwise.
