Any ideas for releasing (fairly safely) the 2 trip springs on a JD 48" plow blade?? With my old Meyer 8' I could run the adjusters all the way down and then the springs just came out of the holes. No "adjusters" on this plow.

I want to remove the moldboard from the frame for maintenance (and an experiment with the leftover frame.

What I did, was with the plow attached to the tractor, I took a 4 foot 2x4 and wrapped a logging chain around it, then took an S-hook made out of 5/16" wire, and hooked it to the spring and the logging chain, then I was on one end of the 2x4 and my son was at the other end and we slowly lifted until the spring unhooked from the moldboard. Whew!
