The bolts were just the ones that come from Slingmods on their puller. My next stop was to go to the John Deere dealer here and see if I could grab some graded bolts same size and shoot for a round 2.what grade bolt did the puller have?
Should have not snapped. Go get some graded hardware.
@Goats_Hogs is correct. Apply tension and then give the center bolts some love with a hammer.
May just apply a bit of love with the hammer on the center bolt this time. Though I am thinking I may set this all aside for the winter. Sling is put away in a tarp shed and it is ungodly cold out right now. -33 with windchill outside, or for you guys....-27
Don't think I want to hit anything metal till it warms up
