    take a small flat screwdriver and turn the screws out. (They only come out about a half inch.), then, take a pair of pliars and pull them out. The little white insert will most likely come out with it. Also, on the back of the plow is a bolt ( I think 9/16 ). That needs to come out too. You should be golen after that.

    Hi

    You may also want to remove the lift chain or increase the slack so you can get more clearence to get the darn thing out without breaking it!

    Oh by the way if anyone needs one these covers I have a good used one $30 + shipping, What a deal! Curtis gets over $ 70 bucks for it new!

    I also have a good used pump as well, $300 , The power jack even worked o this one! lol

    thats what im thinking, my blizzard, and boss both use a wingnut system, but for some reason the curtis needs to use a screwdriver, and a wrench, lol

    ah christ im not too sure on the bolt size to tell you truthfully, i have a horrible memory, i just grabbed the tap that was slightly bigger then the holes and went to town, then grabbed some bolts from a bin i have. no lock washers, they arent going anywhere.

    I bought mine in November of 06 and I have threaded bolts too hold my cover on. I thought it was a crappy way too do things if you have too get in and maintain something. May be Curtis wants us too neglect it so they can have major repairs. Lol.
