Additional Materials Required:
- Hinges (12)
- 1/2″x1″ Bolts (12)
- 1/2″ Nuts (12)
- 1/2″ Washers (12)
Punch holes in 4 of the hinge plates as shown with a 7/8″ or 1″ punch.
Weld one plate with holes, one without holes, and 3 hinges together as shown, with the plates 1 1/8″ apart and the hinge centered.
Make sure the side of the hinge that sticks out most is on the top; this way it won’t interfere with the hopper metal below when installing the hopper.
Make 3 more of these.
Torch the holes shown in the front piece.
Punch all of the holes shown in the side pieces and dirt deflector plate.
Place 1/2″ bolts thru the side pieces and weld them.
Make sure you are making them mirror images of eachother.
Bolt the hinge plate assemblies to the side pieces using a washer, lock washer, and nut on each bolt
