    I have a fisher mm1 plow 8 foot that I am in the process of redoing at the moment. Everything is working out perfect except for the center pin that holds the plow to the frame that goes to the truck. I have no clue how to get this pin out. I have tried just about everything to get it out I think the problem is that the pin is a little bent and me hitting the bottom with a hammer isn't really helping much. I tried the jack didn't work. I really do not want to cut it as I have no money to replace it. if you guys can help that would be great thanks. The arrow is what I am talking about.

    By the way this picture is not a picture of my plow but it is almost identical.

    It has a cotter pin going through it. Usually it is rusted and won't come out easily. Also the pin itseld may be bent and make removal harder. Need a bigger hammer.

    I would scrounge under the seat of you truck, find some spare change and change it if it is bent or rusted. Its less then $10.

    those pins are pretty cheap..
  6. You said thats not your plow in the picture but if its someone you know advise them to get the rust out from behind that cutting edge and retighten the bolts. One good whack on that trip edge will snap the bolts right off when it's loose like that.
