    The bolt that bolts it down is gone! I tried with it on the truck, no luck. Its a 9,2 poly rt3 mount

    Bottom eye on the blade is out of alignment. May need to be bent back. You probably need another pair of hands and a big pry bar

    Lift the plow up and bang a drift pin in from the bottom and it should realign,t hen hammer the pin down,it will push the drift out. If you don't have one just grind a piece of round stock to a point. If it's real bad pull out the torches, it will wear out quickly if it's under a lot of tension.

    Lost my bolt for the second time, thankfully the pin stayed put. Straightened out the tab and re bolted it with blue threadlock. Also got a cool nozzle for my grease gun and forced some grease in the pin holes. Anything else i should grease? Cant see a way to get grease on the trip pivot pin

    You could tack weld it too.

    Is there a torque spec for the bolt that holds the tab down?

    Grease the pins the light tower and A-frame pins. You will have to just grease as there is no grease fittings but it will help wear.

    You'll have to remove the plow, loosen the bottom 4 springs, and wiggle it back in. I recommend welding the nut to the bolt so it won't come loose.
