    I have my Snoway series 25 setup finally done for my Ram 1500. I've connected and picked up the plow and have a question about the top hitch pin that connects to the truck. The supplied pin is just short of 6" and only goes through 2 of the 3 holes on the plow frame. (See attached picture from Snoway parts manual - #24). When I lift the plow it hangs crooked and I think if it was pinned through all 3 holes it would be more level. The pin would have to be 3/4" x 8 1/2" to span all 3 holes. I'm pretty sure I have the factory supplied pin, down to the roll pin in the center. I'm also worried that if I could bend something without a longer pin in there. Should I find a longer pin or am I ok with the current setup? Also, the plow was missing the 2 bottom hitch pins. Are standard forged hitch pins from the tractor store fine or do I need something stronger? Sorry in advance for the novice questions...

    That is the right pin.
