    trying to get my curtis cleaned up and ready. i would like to change all hoses, but cannot see how to get to the jack hose to remove it. i can only remove 4 of the screws on what looks to be an access plate on the bottom of the plow frame. do i have to remove the trip frame to get the access plate off? if so, what size sockets do i need? there is one (large) bolt/nut that looks like it would take it off.

    Thanks in advance for the help....

    No I just looked at mine and can see it would be a pain

    it is a pain ... not done yet .. the cylinder does not come out the plow end, it must come back thru the truck side .. i think you have to take off the spring and the threaded rod . should be fun as the nuts are rusted. :realmad:

    great design, until you have to work on it. i would have preferred a manual jack i think.

    I redid mine last winter. The jack comes out the front of the A-frame. You have to remove the main pivot and trip mechanism to get it out. Additionally, you have to disconnect the jack hose before you can slide it out. You also have to remove the nut off of the spring return, then drop the actual jack foot itself. When the jack cylinder is loose, you can slide the shaft out the rear of the A-Frame and rotate the jack to access the hose fitting. Remove the hose fitting, and slide out the jack cylinder.

    Reverse to re-assemble. By the time you remove the jack cylinder, you're better off reconditioning the paint etc, as you've pretty much disassembled the entire front end of the plow.

    Good luck!
