    Just wondering since I cant get replacement parts until next tues because of the holiday - i am replacing part # 90496 temporarily with (wire rope u-bolts) - #260 3/8" wire rope clip. just wondering about strength -- might have to plow all day with them - possibly - no one in town is open that might even carry zinc U-BOLT .... just asking to see if anyone else has tried this to get by.

    thanks
    jc

    Are you talking about the the "U" bolt that hold the chain chain?

    I would go to a hardware store and pick one up there...
