What I would doo;

Remove that top bolt that holds the braces.
move braces to outside.
Use 2 short bolts from the "inside" of area where hook is to hold braces on with the nuts to outside.
This should/may allow enough room for the hook to fit between the "heads" of the 2 bolts.
Then move Long bolt to the top hole.

I did this same trick to a Box blade and it all went smooth.

If you move long bolt to top hole that should fix that clearence problem.

To do so you need an "open" space where the long bolt is now.

Thats where the 2 short bolts come into play.

swapping the braces outwards may not have to happen but will leave a bigger gap for easier hook up.

Or ditch the bolt that holds the hook on and go to pins with hairpins on each end.

They/He? KBH....sells a different hook that sticks back a bit farther to help with this or other clearence issue.

last option.....cut those ears off of the implement.......I'd try other options first.

1. Kennys extended hook.

2. Take bolts out of hook and use a thin headed pin with a hair pin clip ....these tend to get knocked out and lost...in fact the neighbor lost the whole hook with this set up.

3. Lastly..chop /bend ,section ,trim or remove them ears.. If you plan on keeping implement then a permanent change to it is no big deal. If your unsure.......resort to the first 2 choices.
