    I have a 03 fisher mm1 ez v 8-6 just installed new cutting edge and rubber flap. now the plow is sitting on the flap and the edge is not touching. just plowed a small storm and it left snow everywhere. ???? does it need to wear in or is there anything i can do.

    Thanks Plow is on 88 F350 diesel
     
  2. I just replaced mine last week and the same thing happened. I ended up dragging it around in reverse in a parking lot to wear it down. I got some strange looks but it won't be the last time I get those!!!:nod:

    Did it wear down enough that it sat lower

    I think you may have installed it upside down.

    This is how it should be installed, but it actually goes inside the 2 brackets that come with it. Not in front of them. Bolt the two metal brackets to the trip edge then bot the rubber flap inside of the metal brackets.

    Did away with that factory center bracket on the Clarion Mall truck and made flaps from an old radial tire tread. They had a Canadian company doing this at one time but that company couldn't keep up with the orders. Kept it in the old cranium from Fisher Tech School a few years back.

    I do the same thing but use mud flaps doubled up. Doesn't work as well as the originals. I think I will try a tire next time.
