Grease

I had a pivot pin break one night at an account where there were no lights, that sucked. Especially cause the cops were watching and didn't even offer to shine their light for me....oh well. I have since got a newer plow and it has fittings for those pesky pivot pins. I keep them greased up real well and havn't had a problem since.

Pin removal

On the A frame opposite of where the pin inserts there is a small hole just large enough to get an air hammer in to pound out the pin, with a little help from the flame wrench it should drive out. The meyer replacement pins come with grease zerks to prevent that.


Good Luck :burnout Scott

No its not a new plow it came with the truck but not on it. The guy i bought it from had another F250 that he crashed. He took the plow off it and threw it in with this truck. I had to put it on but i said to myself "ill give it a try before i replace it with a Fisher." Now im starting to wish I just sold the damn thing and put a fisher on it like my other trucks.:mad:

Here's all you need to buy.

A C-8 Moldboard
A C-8 Sector
A C-8 A-Frame
And 2 C-8 Angling cylinders.

Comes to around $1500 NEW.

And you'll be set for years to come.

That ST-90 that you have is a Homeowner Quality plow (Even says so on The Meyer Site!).

Hey Pickering- Im a fisher man myself and I really would like another V-plow but I'd like to talk to you about it. Also don't you run a meyer blade? What model is yours and what luck have you had with it. Feel free to give me a call to chat about the Western.

I use mostly meyers plows an never really have any troubles,but the 1 st90 did break the pivot pins and they were a pain to get out I heated the pins up untill they were cherry red and air chizzled them out. The meyers are good for in city plowing because you always are hitting stuff.

that looks like what my plow did when i hit the man hole cover.

lifted the blade only thing holding it on was the springs

just repaired my blade yesterday
youll need ALOT of heat and an air hammer
on the frame side they come out pretty easy with heat
on my c-8 the rear of the moldboard covers the pin tube
so you cant get heat directly on the tube
i used alot of heat and a c-clamp type ball joint press
to remove the frozen pin

fortunatley my route is close enough to my shop that we threw it in the back of the truck and i plowed with my back up
