    I lost the 3/4 inch bolt for the quadrant to the A frame..now the cylinders to angle the plow are all the way out..if I take off the hoses can I push it back in place and replace the bolt? We have about 8 inches of heavy snow comming tonight
    Thanks (its been a long cold winter)

    Yes you can do that.
    I hope the cylinders haven't extended so far that the seals have been damaged.
    Remember to refill it with hydraulic fluid.

    You may have a little air in the system but it will work out.
    Just make sure to re-check the fluid level.
