    i am making a custom pivot bar for my plow and was wonderin if anyone can help with how to make one
    also was wonderin if the center hole for the pivot bar were the a-frame connects to has to be a little bit bigger then the bolt. Wonderin this because doesn't the plow have to have some play in it for it to lift up on one corner if the ground is not level.

    Same size.

    Not to be a smart ass, but it sounds like you need to do some more research before you go building, sounds like you not fully aware of how the pivot bar functions with the plow and mount.

    That hole will widen a bit with time-you look at any used plow and the hole is no longer round. Same size doesn't mean within .002", but it doesn't mean .25" over either. Take a look at many designs before you start building-you will probably be kicking yourself later if you don't.
