I’m just wondering if anyone has had issues getting the HLA 1000 to fit on the 1026r. I bought it used with hydraulic pivot which was used on a series 2 JD. Nothing appears to be bent but on the passenger side I can’t get the Pin through. Has anyone had issues? I’m hoping this will work great for snow removal on our acreage. Have the parts on order to install on the tractor for the 3rd function up front. The blade has been sitting for about 5 years after the owner passed away.
