    Out plowing the other day and noticed the blade on my Meyer 7'5" wasn't sitting flat when lowered and angled to the drivers side (it sat flat when straight). The drivers side was up about an 1". Ground seemed level, both pins were in the middle hole, couldn't see anything broken, everything else worked fine. Any ideas???

    bent "A" frame or uneven cutting edge wear would be my guess

    If you angle to the right is the right side then off the ground 1"?
    The A-frame needs to be level front to back, is it? Standard pin height for an ST90 plow is 10.5".

    UPDATE
    I pulled it off the truck and it looks like the "A" frame is bent. I swapped it out with a spare blade and frame and its sitting properly. Is it worth trying to get the "A" frame back back into shape?

    Years ago we used to reinforce the A-frames on our ST90 blades to keep them from bending. The two pieces of angle iron that make up the main A, take two pieces of angle iron the same size and box them so that you form a tube. This solved the bending problem on our ST90s that we had on full size pickups.

    you might be able to use the bent frame if its not too bad, just try moving the pins to different holes, as in right side in bottom , left in middle
