    Ok guys got another rig this summer and Iam rebuilding the plow now got some froz pivot pins.Its a C-8 meyer Question is on the moldboard in pic 2 is the tube welded inside the housing? I have tried heat and porto power with tons of press to push out the pin but to no luck. So Iam down to removing the tube and re welding the parts. I think if I cut the tube close in pics 2 with a fiber wheel the tube will come out but if its welded to the rib or inside the housing iam screwed. The pic 3 is easy with a cutting torch to replace the tube and new pivot pins with grease fittings. So anybody ever remove the moldboard side tubes? :waving: Thanks Eric.....

    Yep, plenty of them. Gotta cut the boxed section and all off in order to replace the pin tubes...so just torch it all off and start with fresh stuff. Have to cut the rear of the box open first and then cut the tubes loose from the vertical upright on the moldboard.
