    hey guys, I currently have an e47 and have the oppurtunity to get a e60 for a song, anyway how hard is it to wire the e60 up to the e47 harness?? I would think that they would be pretty much the same. Hopefully they aren't to hard to switch The reason for the switch is cause I here the e60's aren't near as much of a draw on the battery which would keep me from having to buy a bigger alternator, correct? Right now I have a 78 F150 I plan on putting the plow on and it's all stock.

    everthings is the same

    might have to change hoses

    usually the e-47 has a hose attached to it

    most e-60 the hoses stay on the plow

    We converted our old E47 on a 84 Chevy K20 to the E60, the only problem was the E60 wouldn't fit in the frame, so we turned it over. You will notice a big difference in the speed on the E60, Good Luck

    Unless you have a line on a cheap E60, I would look into an E57 conversion kit. It is a new pump with an E60 motor that bolts to an E47 lift and valve system. Cost is about $300. Performs like an E60, but fits where an E47 was. Only available form Meyer dealers near as I can tell.
