    The main front bolt of the A frame, literally ovaled out the hole. It wobbles super bad when you turn it. Is there a fix for this?

    pivot bolt

    well your going to have to completely remove the a-frame from the plow to see how much is bad . you might just have a grooved or worn out bolt only or you might have to completely replace the end of the a-frame with new steel . don't forget to check the quadrant wear the bolt goes into it ,depends on your welding and fabricating skills .you might have to purchase a new a=frame and quadrant .western doesn't make them any more ,but some are being made by buyer's product's (sam's ) .they are never fun .:salute:

    we take them apart and weld a steel tube in the a frame. tube is just long enough to fit in the quad.

    Does anyone know the size of the Pivot bolt on a Western Unimount? Plow is approx 8 yrs old.

    Thanks
