I have the older 2000 model, it has the bolts holding on the cover. But I decided last week I donít like removing the cover anymore (been doing it for too many years). So I just had custom hoseís made for the hydraulics with all new quick disconnects. When this season is done, I am going to remount the pump in a new location under the hood of the truck (removable from bracket), run the first set of lines to the grill area with a quick disconnect & the second set from the plow up to connect. Last year the pump got very slow when it was below zero out, this should take care of that issue & I can just open the hood & check the level for all my fluid at once with out getting out any tools to remove the cover. Come to think of it, I think I will store my extra hoseís and pins under the cover, wonít be needing them that often.

I had a old plow (fisher) that had the pump under the hood (anyone else ever have one?). The pump ran off a belt on the motor & sat just above the power steering pump on its own bracket. I did not like that it ran with a belt off the motor, but dam that plow was faster then any of the other plows I have had. Even the western & Meyer I had with the water jacket installed was not as fast as the fisher & I think a lot of it was because the pump & fluid stayed warmer under the hood (& never over heated). So I think that this one will be much better under the hood. 6 years of pulling off the cover is enough for me & a Friend of mine made the hose's at his shop. All the quick disconnects + heavy duty hose's, rated with a higher pressure rating than the stock one's & he only charged me $60.00. I thought that was a good deal, he even pulled the truck into the shop and did all the measuring making sure they would all run with a little slack. All I need to do is make a bracket to mount the pump on & the plow needs repainted after this season & it will be good for a few more years.

Anybody else think the A frame was a really bad place to put the pump and all that wiring? I don't know about you guys but my 03 gave me all sorts of corrosion problems last winter. Seems like every other storm I had that damn cover off to splice and replace wiring. A friend of mine called that compartment my "salt water tank." Not that they are perfect, but I've gone back to Fisher. I'm not intending to be insulting, just wondering if anyone else got frustrated. It sounds like vulcan has the right idea. By the way vulcan, I still run a belt driven fisher on my 95 Chevy and totally agree.

i was lookin at my plastic cover thought i would change my fluid as well..
not one of those screws would come out.. i gave up before i wrecked them.

who's bright idea was those cheesy screws any way?
seems like a snow plow should have some stainless parts on it. seems like common sense to me.
