    Two things - look at the top holes in each wing - the 1/4" plate. Those holes will oval after a number of years. The stacked round blocks of the hinge are much thicker, and should hold you together.

    Secondly, look at the 1" rods on the A-frame that mates to the lower hooks on the truck portion of the RT III mount. They get hammered from round to flat over time from pushing. That allows a bit of play in the mount as you drive. No big deal. If that's what you find it to be, you could build the 1" rods back to round with your welder if you have lots of time.....

    Is this something to worry about..? will they fall off. or separate? just noticed and kinda worried i may be damaging plow... or is there a center hinge post that holds the two at the center? i thought maybe that is wearing.. but i do grease it pretty regularly

    Nothing to worry about: drive 'er. Just do your regular circle checks to look for issues.
