Anybody have the MF630 dozer blade, I'm looking for a good picture of the factory front bracket.
This is the best pic I have of 1 that I just found here at GTtalk.

As you can see it's a small pic looking for a nice big one and measurement of height.

Mike thanks those pictures good enough, tells me what I need to know.
Question the spring is that where it's suppose to go?
I thought it went to the frame near the pivot point? Not the top of the blade.
The lift assist spring.

Well, theres a hole on the center of the blade and the center of the arch. Theyre the same size. The spring is a perfect fit this way. The early snowblower I got with the 12 was complete too. And you konw all the brackets and what not with the early blowers. so i dont have any reason to doubt this.

Ya I just checked the part's books 3 different MF630 blades all the same just little differences.
Early 2 piece push tube.
Late 1 piece push tube with skid shoes
Late 1 piece push tube w/o skid shoes

Looks like I have the late style w/o skid shoes.
That bracket won't be hard to make. I'll just set the height for what ever spring I come up with and make it work.
Thanks for the help guys, learn something new everyday.
Now I got to get George to change the title since I put the wrong model #

English measure is good, I have a hard time with Canadian metric, guess I just too old.
I got enough info now to make my own.
Thanks again.

Mine has the one piece push tube, w/o skids. If you need any measurements let me know...

Well I found a MF630 parts diagram here at GTtalk in the manuals section and I looked though my pile of info and found an operators manual for the exact MF630 that I have. Here's a picture that I have of what I wanted to know right from the start.

I looked in the parts manual and realized that you have the late model blade, I sent you hangar dimensions from my earlier model, sorry about that. I uploaded the MF 730 manual recently in response to a request, which had me looking at that implement, something I hadn't looked at in years. It seems that over time the MF 630 and the MF 730 dozer blades both adopted the same non-reversible wear blade and both lost the skid shoes. I don't know if that represented cost-cutting or a better understanding by AMF/Massey about how consumers were using the tractors and for how long they would typically use them.

Doug, I gotta make a bracket for mine as well as I don't have the correct piece and after looking at that picture it makes sense to me as to why my dozer blade was so darn heavy to lift. Judging by that pic where the helper spring mounts is like a foot higher then the guide which would definitely help. Now that I have the blade for the Cub I don't know how soon I would get to making a bracket for the Massey dozer blade especially since I love having the snow blower on the 12.

Here's a picture of the wear bar (cutting edge) on the blade I have, right now the blade is off the frame and will stand up straight on it's own. Looks like they incorporated the cutting edge and skid shoes into 1 piece that runs the length of the blade.

The bracket that I have to make, the height will be determined by the spring I use, not going to buy one just use something that I already have.

Ever heard the expression 1 tractor, 1 attachment.
Or 1 tractor, 1 summer and 1 winter attachment.

I have just picked up a late model 630 blade (one piece push rod, no skids) but missing the front hangar and lift assist spring. Would anyone be kind enough to be able to post dimensions please? Alternatively, if they have already been uploaded somewhere, perhaps someone could point me in the right direction.... Many thanks!

MFGray, post number 9 in this thread has some measurements of one of the MF style front brackets. But I'm not sure I'm understanding exactly what you need.
