I have a King Kutter 3 point dirt scoop and in general if I like it.

It has one quirk that aggrevates me in that loaded the latch is difficult to trip.

There is a tube, piece of pipe that the lever rides on. It is not welded that I can see.

I'm wondering if I loosen the bolt through it so it can roll if it would not work better?

I hope this helps. I've not had the opportunity to see one of these close up, so not sure what you were talking about on the latch. Lube can't hurt it.

On my Ferguson scoop I have to keep the latch oiled or its hard to trip.  I just give it a shot of oil every time I hook it up to the tractor.

Yes I pulled the bushing greased the through bolt and greased the bushing. I used the heck out of the scoop to move material and really like it. But if this does not fix it I might reconfigure the trip latch to gain some Mechanical advantage.
