    Well I know its suppose to be 10 and 1/2 inches from ground to bottom of plow mount where the a frame mounts with the two pins. but mine is 14 inches, now wait angled left or right even at full angle plow sets straight on ground from left side to right side. I hope it cleans and scrapes well. Am I right for thinking that my mount height is ok if the blade stays in contact with the ground even when angled. By the way I do have a hefty cutting bar, made from T-1 steel, its around 5-6 inch high cutting edge.

    It is certainly not level but not extreme, when i get a chance tomorrow i'll try to get a degree on the angle. if it don't scape good the first snow, i may build the top edge of the A-frame with a 2" square tubing instead of dropping the mount lower to keep my clearance, does anyone know if building up the height of the A-frame would cause any problems, can't remember if I've read this here or not, alot of info here to sift through.

    The only problem you might have is when you drive over the top of a steep hill, the blade could hang in the air (piston compressed fully) and not make contact with the road on the down side of the hill until the rear of the truck comes up. I think you can compensate for this with chain length/adjustment though.
