I have a question about the 8" Brinly plow.  I picked one up about 6 months ago and this past Sunday I started messing with it.  What I found out was the adjustment handle and sleeve was pretty much froze up from rust.  I had been soaking it for about a week with PB Blaster, wire brushing all the rust off but it seems like there might be rust inside the sleeve that attaches to the rear.

 

Where would a person find a replacement adjustment setup for one of these???

If you have access to a torch, I would try heating it before giving up.

I removed mine, soaked it with penetrating oil and used a pipe-wrench & vise.

 

As said in another post.....Heat it up, THEN use parafin wax on it. The wax will melt into the threads and you should be able to turn the turn-buckle.

 

I have never tried this wax method, but several people I know have and swear by it.

I've had things rusted so tight you'd swear it was welded, but heating the FEMALE threaded part good & hot is the best method.  Heat that part as fast as possible to help stop heat transfer to the male part, then start unscrewing it.  Some wax will help a lot.  As it starts cooling, it may begin to tighten, so re-heating will likely be needed till you get it apart.  Once apart, a good cleaning & lubing usually gets things working smooth again.  Running a die down the male threads will help tons.

I will second or third the torch method.  That really seems to do the best at breaking apart the really rusty stuff.  Once it's apart, then using a tap and die on the parts will clean things up nicely.

Just to add to the heating process,as you heat the female part tap on it firmly with a hammer all the way around it, this will also help to break the rust bond and let it come apart.

SO true!  I've often gotten things apart by doing the tapping only, with no heat at all, but in this case, heat is likely needed as well.

I agree with the torch, one thing to keep in mind, that may be a sealed container you are heating... Those can become an issue.

If its gonna require cherry red hot, I would take it off and drill vent holes on the bottom where they won't be seen. Also allow you to take it off during the winter, flip it and add some oil.

Well, I tried and tried, got it almost all the way apart and it started chewing up the threads on the male end really bad. Heat, pipe wrench, lube,ect. This thing is a pain in the butt!!!!

 

If this piece is trashed, does anyone happen to have a spare laying around??

I believe the one for their newest plow is the same piece. You will want to contact them to verify, but here is the exploded parts list.

Part number 13. It's only $18 plus shipping, so not all is lost.

If you get another, be sure to run a tap into the the tube to clean those up first.

And put some anti-seize in there!

Oh man, thanks for the link, I see several parts that I am going to lust over until I can get them ordered.
