rod and spring,
do you mean the rod and spring that holes down pressure on the trail wheel?
the pipe on the side of the big frame tube is my way of building the kick stand leg, so the plow will stand up when parked.
the support leg was missing and with the curved mainframe and only two plow disc, it just did not appear it would be very sturdy with the regular support stand, the stand works great.
did i answer your question?
