    One our plows wouldn't angle, so I took off the cylinder dissembled it. This is what I found; I am to assume the driver came into contact with something without it fully angled to the stops. The force of the impact stripped the nut from the threads and jamming it between the push rod and the cylinder, thus collapsing the nut.:mechanic:
