    I just got a used Western 8 6 Unimount plow. I have 2 questions. #1 When i got it there was no lights on it. the wiring on the plow on the pass side has 9 wires. and on the left side there is just 5. What do you do? does all the light wires run to the pass side first then over the the left side(drivers)? then questions #2. In the Vee Position the out sides of the plow are off the ground...What do you do with that? is there any Adjustments? and if so Where... Thanks alot... Also what do you do to the middle shoe to keep it on? Any upgrades that work?

    #2 you should be able to park on a flat surface, put the plow in scoop, loosen the two bolts on each side of the rear a-frame, plow should sit flat, then retightn bolts. this should level it out!

    There are no bolts to adjust it. 90% of the time in V position, the ends will be slightly off the ground. I for one never use V, but scoop more than anything. If your a-frame is level (which is a necessity when running a V), scoop and angled both ways should be flat. If one side is higher than the other, the a frame is bent. It's usually easy to tell on a used plow if one cutting edge is shorter than the other.

    And yes, the wires are correct. One side feeds the other (headlight and parks + ground for each).

    The center flap is available as a set with the mounting brackets and bolts, or just the flap itself. The kit is pricey (over$100), but namely b/c it uses the brackets as wear edges to slow down wear on the rubber. I'll see if I can find part #'s.


    Edit: Here ya go!!
