    Has anybody had to replace the U-Bolts on the A Frame that the lift chain attaches to? I was checking out my plow yesterday and realized that one of them was rusted through and the other was holding on by a thread.

    Yes. Usually mine fail before they ever even get a chance to rust. It's no big deal they are available at your local hardware store. If they aren't available you can just drill out a slightly larger hole and just use a grade 8 bolt.

    Thanks for the help. I'll probably replace them tomorrow sometime so I can move the thing safely and fix the gasket and seal that are shot.
