    you would have to by the hydraulic pump, 9pin harness for the plow, and a 9pin harness setup for the truck, plus the controller.

    If B&B, Crash, or Repo jumps on here, one of them might be able to help you with the part numbers.

    First, the pump you are wanting is called a SEHP. I think they call the one you have a EHP, Western calls them something different, but the name escapes me right now.

    You can go two ways here, either 3 plug ISO, or 2 Plug relay. If you plan on buying a newer plow in the future for this truck, you might as well go with an ISO setup. If you just want to get it converted over to electric, relay would be your best bet. This is also dependent on what you have for a truck. Best guess tells me you have to have an older truck were your running cable op.

    Need to know what truck you have to give you accurate part numbers though.

    On a side note, I know where there is a brand new SEHP right now for $300, but it's for the smaller blade sizes.

    Nothing you can do to a cable operated pump to make it electronic, have to switch the whole pump, controls and harness.

    what year and model is your truck?

    Are you saying your vehicle is a 1985 chevy k1500 1/2 ton?

    What kind of plow. Is it a western (red plow) or fisher (yellow plow)???

    Maybe a picture of the truck and plow?

    This is what we need to know so you will get the correct information.

    Could probably go to a Monarch, Fenner or Barnes pump cheaper than switching to a Western pump.

    Measure the actually lift ram section on the pump assembly. If you have the short one I can give you a # to a guy with a new one for cheap $$.
