My name is Dane and I'll try to help you with your problem. I have given you the basic instructions here for mounting most john deere snow blades.
Here is a link to the parts diagram for the blade too.
You need to remove the mower deck from the machine, and you may have to remove the front bumper as well.
First, install the mounting brackets on the tractor. Align the holes in each mounting bracket with the holes in the tractor frame. Install using the kit that comes with the mounting bracket. Don't tighten this yet.
Next you should install the pivot support. Insert the pins on the right and left hitch plates into the notches on the mounting brackets. Install the pins and tighten the screws on those mounting brackets now.
Next you should Install the blade. Align the holes in the pivot support with the second holes from the end of the push channel assembly. Insert the channel pin and washer and secure with the spring locking pin.
Install the lift handle. Slide the lift handle rod into the end hole in the push channel assembly. Insert the lift link pin in the pivot support bracket into the lift handle rod. Add the washers and locking pin.
Now, Iistall the blade pivot rod. Either end of the blade pivot rod goes through the blade pivot shaft. The other end goes through the lift handle tube. Secure both ends with locking pins.
Lubricate the lift handle rods and pivot points.
Install the rear tire chains and wheel weights.
I hope I've helped. If you found this information useful, please leave feedback as deserved. Thanks! Dane
