    I picked up an old Western, best I can find at Western's site is that it is a US65 model. What is the typical height of the cutting edge off the ground when the blade is up? This old plow has probably been on several trucks. The chain attach point has been changed on the push frame. I may need to change it again to get the normal raised height. I have it on a 99 K1500 Suburban. The bottom of the edge now clears the ground by about 11 1/2 inches. If I move the chain attach point back a few inches, it clears by about 14 inches.Thanks
