    Noises while angling are usually caused by the pivot bolt or pivot holes worn in either the nose plate on the A-frame, or the quadrant, or both. You might want to check into it as if it's worn, it will only get worse. You'll need to separate the quadrant from the A-frame to get a good look at the bolt and the pivot holes....

    If it is worn could you just sleve it or weld on a new one. and how hard is to seperate it from the blade. I have never don this i just bought this year used.

    Sure, they can be fixed either by welding the holes up and re drilling them, or cutting out the worn hole and replacing the steel and re drilling the hole. To remove the quadrant from the A-frame, you just remove the front pivot bolt from each of the angle cylinders and then just remove the main pivot bolt and slide the A-frame off the quadrant. If you want do an initial check, just remove the pivot bolt and look at the bolt (checking for wear) and look down through the pivot holes. You should be able to see any major wear as the holes wont be round like they should be..they'll be egg shaped.
