You should be able to loosen off the spring on the spring assist and move it closer to the centre of the tractor on the rock shaft. That should give you room for the blade support on the rock shaft.

I'd like to thank whoever posted about using the 1/2 in coupler nuts to mount the mule drive etc to the front of narrow frames, makes life way easier.

I've run into a problem mounting the sub frame for the dozer blade on the 123. Where it goes onto the rockshaft, there is a spring assist mounted to the left side of the rockshaft right where the sub frame would slip onto the rockshaft. Any ideas? do I need a different spring assist?

I have a tiny tach`s here and yes it is all over the place when the tractor is running . When I bought it I was thinking it might be great for setting up an engine ; but I soon saw that it was not very accurate .

Optical tach and Vibra tach compare very favorably every time I've compared them.......

Have heard more than one report about Tiny Tach's being all over the place....
