    Does diamond have a quill? If so where's it located? Thanks for the info on the western quill guys. The guy who plows with that truck was truely in heaven today plowing compared to past snow storms. Just looking to see if i could speed my diamond up any. The dealer didn't really know anything about a quill on the diamond. I think a myers is the same pump as the diamond. I could be wrong!

    I don't know Diamond plows very well, but I think they use Meyer pumps, which I think have a quill on the lower, backside of the pump housing. You are talking about the quill for adjusting the "drop" speed of the blade correct?
