    Hi Mike, thank you for info, my distance is only 3 inches so something is very wrong. does the blade turn on the pin in the blade bracket, (wondering if the pin is to tight).
    what is the distance from the ram shoulder to bracket on chassis at the raised height. thank you

    Hi terry with the blade raised fully I can only get a finger in between the ram shoulder and the bracket = is that what you meant?

    Hi Mike, yes that is what i meant. thank you. I removed the pin (attached to front of blade and ram) this evening and found that the blade moves freely upwards. However the Ram will not retract anymore and there is about an inch gap between ram shoulder and bracket. Now that is when the blade is 3 inches off the ground. So I am wondering if the Ram has been changed, as the hydraulic pressure seem ok , as the blade will remain in raised position all day!

    Hi Mike, Can you measure the length of the body of the ram please and the height from the top of the blade to ram pin center when blade / ram is horizontal ie at its highest.
    I am wondering now if the old blade was not the original and the new blade i purchased was based on the size of the old blade. photo below.
    thank youm regards Terry
