    How would i go about bench testing a E47 unit. I got one in a pkg deal when I got a western. I i got was the e47 not the whole plow. i want to sell it but I want to make sure it works.

    Th motor runs. but I dont know where/how to check the fluid level. And i would like to make it function

    Easiest thing would be to find a friend with a meyer plow. If you were closer I would say bring it over but betting 2 hours is a bit of a drive just to test a pump.

    To test pressure you should be able to hook a gauge to one of the angling rams. Don't remember off the top of my head what it is supposed to be but the the link I posted should say in there somewhere.
