Removing Snow Plow

Postby wrz » Tue Nov 13, 2018 10:11 am

Yesterday tried to remove the long bolt that goes through the two blocks and it must be rusted fast. With the support brackets on both sides it is hard to get Kroll on the bolt and am thinking of cutting the bolt off (both sides) then sliding the two blocks out. Also the blocks may be rusted fast too. Any suggestions ?

Impact wrench or even impact hammer.

William, Are you able to unscrew the two set screws that hold the blocks in the bolster? If you can't pound out the bolt with a punch, sounds like your idea of cutting both ends may be necessary.

Can you not unscrew the nut on the bolt, or is the bolt not wanting to come out? That long bolt is supposed to be grade 5, but is frequently replaced with a softer bolt which bends. Only one guess how I learned this. It was a real challenge to get out. I also learned to put the nut in the inside under the tractor, not on the outer end. Thar way if the bolt did get bent you did not have to work it out through the blocks.

also, if someone used normal bolts to hold the blocks in place rather than harden ed set screws, the may be headed on the thread ends. and not able to unscrew more than a few threads.

Note, when assembling stuff anti seeze can be your friend, there is setscrews in those blocks.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

The nut came off but unable to move the bolt. Used a 3 foot bar on the bolt head but was worried about the casting. Also hammered on the end (thread). Will try impact tool.

Update: Tried impact tool and did nothing. The set screws came right out with no problems. The long bolt was rusted fast on the thread end in the pivot arm. Got it free this am after lubing for a couple weeks and using a long breaker bar on the head of bolt. The two blocks came out easy. So the next time it starts snowing I will take John's advice and put the nut on the left side and grease it well on the pivot arm.

When I redid my snow plow I spent the extra money and redid every bolt/screw/nut/washer/lock washer in stainless steel. Only time I don't use stainless is on bolts for the wheels and I use Grade 8 for better corrosion resistance, plus they look pretty and give the tractor some "pop" according to my niece (10) who watches a lot of HGTV...........
