Dozer Blade, Model B7 mounted on a 1948 Ford 8N tractor
While looking for a front mounted snow plow for my 1948 Ford 8N, I
finally managed to find one after months of looking, a Sauder B7 Dozer
I had to do a "lot" of searching on the internet to find out much
information on this plow, thought that I would put the information I
used to get this plow mounted in one place, in case others are looking
for information on this plow.

First test run of the plow!
After using the tractor for snow removal, found that I needed to change
the front brackets to prevent the snow plow frame from lifting off the
front axle. The frame would lift high enough to shift over the
stop tabs on the angle iron. Plus the cross member on the plow from was
hitting the bottom of the tractor.
Added a "J" loop to each bracket, and that seems to have fixed the problem (at least for now....).

Chain to hold down the 3 point hitch lift arms to generate pressure via the test port to operate the lift cylinder for the blade
Additional chains to hold up the rear weights when the blade is in the down position
