    Pins maybe bent or warped. Unhook the springs and pull out the pins to check them. Also look for a rock stuck by the pins

    First off, be careful working around the unit. As you loosen up the pivot points (pins) the blade will kick back with some force. I am assuming this is a TM style classic mount as it is a jeep?

    If it is the TM, it does sound like the pins are rusted in place. I have not heard of them binding up, but it would be the only point of resistance when the springs are tripped and extended.

    If it is not a TM, let me know what blade is on there and I will try to help if I can.
