I been thinking if we fab two wings for both sides of the plow can we add a small hydraulic cylinder to turn the wings with a tie rod connecting them to hinge right and left omitting the snow a standard plow leaves behind. I think two 10” -12” wing extensions will work on hinges.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

The bolt and nut in the pic is wrong, you need a lock nut so that part that swivels on the bolt and bushing isn’t too tight so it won’t swivel or sswivel too slow. Regular nuts come loose lock nuts don’t.

Which picture and bolt/nut are you referring to? Something in one of my pictures or someone else's?

For snow plow wings, take a look at ricky racer's fabrication: http://farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=87076&hilit=plow+wings

Anywhere there’s a swivel point with a bushing there should be a lock nut so we can’t over tighten the hinge effect. Too tight it takes too long to drop.
The horizontal spring underneath pulls the plow down and adjusts the downward plow pressure.

Good stuff Bill. There were precautions and tips before the inevitable snow dump. This info matters really quick in a blizzard. At times, there isn't any other way to get to a shed that has the snow blade. The 154 with chains , is the only way and find that snow is piling up so quickly that working in a snowstorm.. to attach the snow blade, is about the only way to get the tractor out of there. Bolts and nuts and stuff in the tool bag and the snow is covering the tools which will rust. Dang and frozen fingers, feet. Oh gosh BigBill you tried to tell us.

It is forecast .. it will be dry around here. So many of our friends are already struggling with snow and maybe got their power back.
Big Salute to our Electric Power Techs!!! Dang. Sometimes you are not supposed to go there but they need things. A safety cone or other ways to protect their area. Water bottles, taken or not, signifies our respect for their work.
This is calm before the storm in parts of Virginia. We are going to be hammered in January and Feb.

Tractor supply has hardened washers we can put between two moving parts so there is less friction when it swivels, there a few bucks and come in different sizes and I’d bores.
