    Well I decided it was probably time to grease the center pin on my Boss V. It has little holes that I guess you are suppose to put a grease gun needle in and grease them. Most wouldn't take grease so I am going to pull the center pin and clean everything up and lube it.
    Question: Any one do this before and if so is it a bear or pretty easy. Also is there anything else you guys do besides changing oil for maintainance?

    Do it on a hard,level surface,i do the Fisher V's in the vee position and pull the pin,they usually sit right there,not to far they can go anyways,a second pair of hands helps if the blade halfs do move a little.

    let the tension off the return springs first and like has been said, if they get out of alignment at all, be ready for some fun. a second person would help alot.
    have you ever greased your plow center pin, or is it new?? i had paint over one hole and couldnt get it to accept grease until i removed the pin. good luck :)

    There is a 3/8" bolt in the bottom of the pin that must be removed in order to pull the pin up. Take a good look at that bolt - chances are it is bent because it is the one that holds on the snow deflector. Leave the replacement bolt as a Grade 5, don't upgrade it to grade 8, as it is better to let the bolt take the beating than the deflector or pin.
