    On the last storm my plow blade fell to the ground and busted the top cap. Upon further investigation today I realized the threaded holes for the cover where also ripped right from the sump. NOT COOL!

    So im gunna order a sump base, studs and cover from angelos along with a master kit.

    My question is what could have caused this? i was driving down the street when it happened. My dad thinks I clipped the snow bank on the side of the street...possible i guess. I also want to point out i have the slick stick and keep finding myself holding it in the up position to long..im still getting used to the stacking. however no stacking at that job

    and my drop speed is actually kinda slow it dosent even come close to slamming down.

    another question is after i reasemble it will the pressure need to be set. would places just set pressure?

    thanks again guys!

    PS It broke on the last job 2 miutes from home...ill start bringing a jack now just incase LOL

    That's not really good for it especially if the pump pressure is set to high. Here, read the service manual for your pump while you wait for the parts to arrive... http://www.meyerproducts.com/upload/forms/1-667%20R7.pdf

    if your cross over relive was set to high and you hit something (snow bank while driving) i would think that would be the weekest link and be the first place for the pressure to go.

    and yes you will have to reset the pressure. 2200 psi for the operating pressure and 3800 (if my memory serves me right) for the cross over relief. if you going to rebuild it you might as well set the pressures. It is easier than rebuilding and only takes a few mins with two people.

    you need a gauge that reads up to 3800 psi. i got mine from harbor freight. Hook into the passenger side power angle coupler. If you search my post i made a thread about this a few weeks back.

    The reason the 60 is runnin slow with that slick stick is they react much faster to the touchpad set up. My E60 is pretty quick on my truck and I run the touchpad.

    ????, What does that have to do with a broken pump? And why do think a Slik Stik would be slow? It's a mechanical switch, it's either on or off.
