    I have a 2000 Chevy 7500 and I plan on putting a plow spreader and dump bed on it to use this winter. It has a PTO and a driveshaft but no pump. I have a doner truck that I am taking the hydraulic tank,controls and hoses from but the guy wants to keep the pump. Any help with what size flow rate pump I need or where I can get one would be great. I am not sure what size bed I will install yet (Haven't found a good deal yet) if that matters. The pump has to have a 1 inch shaft with a 1/4 inch key to fit my driveshaft. thanks david
