    picked up another truck/plow today and the 9' ss xblade dropped a bit hard when I went to buy it but didn't want to sit and screw around with stuff in front of the guy selling since I wanted to take the deal and run. I knew the fix and could do it later. The damn quill will not budge and i'm afraid to snap it off. some rust around it but nothing to bad that i would think accounts for it being stuck. So far I sprayed WD40 and fluid film which is all I had on hand. I've moved a quill on some pretty crappy plows and this one certainly isnt bad. any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Maybe a little heat.....map gas or propane torch couldn't hurt as well
