    Are you talking about the 2 horizontal plow mounting pins?

    Horizontal pin needs to be 7" to make it all the way through. Keep the protruding sides short though or they'll contact the wings when in the vee position thus damaging the wings. Buy a longer pin and saw it off to the needed length and install. Then weld a large flat washer on each side to hold it in place..

    Thanks. I ended up picking one up at tsc and welding a washer on. Works like new. Thanks
