IH 42 inch blade pin
Has anyone replaced the pivot pin on the mount that holds the blade to the mount? I just finished up moving 10 inches of snow off my driveway when I was setting the blade straight and it fell off it was really sad but yet funny that's not going to work very well.
I have an idea to cut the old one out and replace it with a 3/4 by 10 coarse thread bolt the one that broke had fine threads and castellated nut with cotter pin.

Did you still have the spring for it? I had to replace mine last year because the old one got bent from multiple hard impacts and got too weak. Ended up finding some scrap metal and made a new one.

Yes the springs are both still really good, I only had one hard impact that put the blade all the way over but otherwise it's been very good. I just put a new blade and skid shoes on it about a month ago. I have some pictures of the broken pin little post in a little bit. I thought I had seen somebody had these for sale.

I had one that broke. To get me out of a jam, I went to Tractor Supply and bought a Hitch Pin of the same diameter. I then cut to length.

Thankfully I had just finished up and it was ready to put the Cub Cadet in the garage. I was thinking about putting a bolt through there but I have time now so I got a piece of three-quarter inch by 7 inch round and I'm going to tap one end 3/4 by 16 fine thread and weld it into place.

I finished the blade repair today. Final touches included painting some and adding the new decal, I used Valspar Almond color paint, I thought it turned out really good. Also the three holes in the top were from on po modification, for the lever. All ready for the next winter, hopefully. :buttrock:
