About This File
Drawing for both the short lift link, and the down pressure lift link for the front snow blade.
Short lift link 105052
Long lift link 7706 most likely replaced by 7706-01
I drilled 3/8" holes in the bar and used 3/8" x 2-1/2" Gr.5 bolts. Cut the threads off.
Weld the head of one bolt to the bar and try it for alignment. I ended up installing the 2nd bolt from the other direction and welding the head only. This provided 1/4" of offset and the pins are square to their attaching parts to minimise wear.
Drill holes in the bolts perpendicular to the bar for spring pins. Use a countersink to ease the edges of the holes.
With the holes drilled like they are you now know where they are and you can instal the pins blindfolded.
With manual lift the float is built in - everything floats including the lift handle.
With hydraulic lift the float is accomplished by connecting the bottom of the link to the slotted hole. Down pressure is still available when the pin hits the bottom of the slot.
