    I am looking for someone who can remove one of our traditional mount western plows from an older 86 chevy c-30 dump. We are in the Illinois area. Anyone know of someone that can do this?

    Any car repair shop should be able to do it.
    A western Dealer can do it

    It's no fun. Usually all of the boths and nuts are rusted solid. I'm in the processing of removing a Meyers off of a 79 Dodge Ramcharger. Managed to get about 4 bolts out with impact wrench and socket wrench. Other polts either had to be taken out with a cut off wheel or a hot knife. Still have four more bolts to go, then comes the wiring.

    Just get an oxi-assydeline torch, some duct tape, a pair of pliers, and some wd 40 and do it your self, with those 4 tools you can do anything! Heck you could build a house!
