    Plowed about 20 hours yesterday in storm last 2 hours noticed no side to side on plow. Eventually no up and down. Realized the pump was dry ran out got hydro fluid and a new hose. Got back got it up and then saw I busted a cylinder, no biggy but the plow is disconnected from the A frame. Is this a bolt or a weld that snapped? Truck is an 03 f250 SD with a classic ST-7.5 and e 60 pump. Any input would be nice after a long night. Was supposed to go back out in the am but I am stuck.

    Posting a pic would help but it sounds like you need a welder.

    Here are the pictures. It looks like a bolt would connect the 2 parts

    yes a bolt is suposed to be there. You got lucky usally I see the a frame broken off but yours looks like the bolt fell out.Use at least a grade 8 bolt and make sure the nut is on the bottom.

    That is just a lost bolt not broken frame. Thats a simple fix you have to colapse the rams so you can move the a frame back in position. You can use a bolt but there is a piviot pin that they make.I use SS bolts and as 84deisel said the nut goes on the bottom so if the bolt breakes it does not fall out.
