    Hey Guys
    I know this has probably been discussed in here before but I didn't see it. I have a Ultramount 8.5 Pro with 3 springs finally got some snow in Ok the other day and went out soon as I got any significant amount of snow against the blade it flipped so cranked up the springs but can't find the proper adjustment for the springs on the Western site? Blade was just overhauled before I bought it. I don't think they tightened them up enough. Sorry for the windage.

    from the top of the spring count down 3 loops,coils what ever you want to call them. Then try and feed a piece of paper thru. If it goes thru they are tight enough. If not tighten them until it does.

    3 springs? You sure it's not a Unimount?

    Yes it is a unimount I did some more homework. And it does snow in Ok but not near enough for my liking. Born in western Mass and grew up in Iowa.
