    Is there any adjustments on the Meyer Pumps. I feel like my plow moves slow up and down also slow side to side. Anything I can do about it?

    You may have water in the system and it is freezing up. Flush it out and then put in Meyers fluid.
    Good Luck

    Drop speed is the only thing you can adjust.

    Sounds good....I will flush it out.

    How do you adjust the drop speed?

    You don't, E57's have no drop speed adjustment. Do a through fluid flush and filter clean if it's been a while. And if it's several years old it's good practice to pull the lift ram/tank assembly and clean out the sump base as well. No amount of fluid changing and flushing will remove the debris that accumulates in the sump after a few years on these things. Disassembly is the only way to truly get them clean.

    My mistake, I thought just the e47's were non adjustable.

    The 57's don't either because they're nothing more than an E47 with a larger gear pump and 4.5" inch motor. Everything else in their make up (sump, ram, valve block etc) is identical and directly interchangeable so there were still no provisions anywhere for an adjustable drop speed. :waving:

    Anyone know of a source with the different pumps listed with spec/ features.. like 47 is rated for x lbs, no DS adjustment, years produced, that kinda stuff.

    Don't know of any "all in one" detailed documents covering all previous and current pumps in a history format There are some bits and pieces here and there but mostly on the later stuff and it would take a whole page for all the background, history and details so I presume when you need something specific...you'll just have to ask. :D
