    I am looking at buying a 1995 Chevy 2500 with a 350, rebuilt auto, 8' Fisher Minute Mount plow (hydrualic pump under the hood), with 160,000 miles on it. In March it had new front shocks put in, sway arm, idler arm, brake handle and pads, and tie rod ends put in it. I just wanted to see if there is anything I need to watch out for with either the truck or plow? Any info would be appreciated.

    The fuel pump in my 97 3/4 ton with a 350 goes out atleast once a year! Other than replacing alot of the parts on the front end last year, it's been a great truck with 180k on it and runs/looks new! Oh, and the damn seat rips in the same spot on all of em. right beside your left a$$ check.

    Have you changed the plug on the end of the fuel pump harness where it plugs into the sending unit? Those plugs fail alot.
