    Has anyone had to use larger diameter hitch pins to mount their meyer plow. I got a Cp-8 and the a-frame mounting holes have got enlarged due to wear. I was thinking about getting some bigger pins to tighten it up, has anyone done this before?

    Yup , drill out to 3/4" and replace the hitch pins with new 3/4"ones .

    Only drawback is you need to drill out the truck side to 3/4" also. So if you ever try to mount a plow with 5/8" holes in the A frame it will wobble .

    I machined a special "stepped" set of pins for myself with a bushing for the one side in case I had to transport a customers plow since my truck is drilled 3/4".
