    I have a set of Buyers Pro Wings for my 7 1/2 Western Ultramount and the instructions got misplaced. Could someone please tell me what the measurements are, I don't want to risk putting a hole in the wrong spot by guessing. Thanks

    Just mount the hinges on the sides and then put the wings on and then you can tell where the hole needs to be in the moldboard. As a side note , be sure you have a new cutting edge on when you set the wing mounting height.

    Got the sheet right here in front of me. The hole is 8 1/2 inches from the end of the blade. Measure up the blade starting at the top of the cutting edge. Push the tape measure against the plow blade so as to follow the curve. It is 9 5/8 up. They say to make the hole 1 1/8. I used a plasma cutter and made a nice clean cut. I ended up enlarging the hole slightly so the wing will rotate freely into and out of the hole while pivoting on the hinge pins.

    Locating the hinges onto the blade is pretty straight forward. They can be bolted or welded on. I bolted mine on. There should be a couple of longer 3/8 in. bolts left over, they are for use with a meyer plow. The bolts for the rubber edges just use a regular nut and a lock washer, I decided to use a self locking nylock instead.

    Be sure to set the blade down on a flat surface when marking for the rubber edge attachment holes. The rubber drills easy.

    I just had my pro-wings installed yesterday. We messed up putting on the rubber edges. The plow was not on the truck when I put them on so now they do not sit flush to the ground or the plow edge. Do you think if I flipped the rubbers over and drilled new holes this would work. I know the rubbers is pretty thick, but I don't want them to tear.

    Yea just flip them over and re-drill. I did that with mine after a couple of years to extend the service life.

    Thanks. I'll try that in the next couple days, when the weather gets above 0. I think I will also buy a spare set, they probably don't cost to much.
