e-46 [vs] e-47 Hook Up

    New to the mechanics of plowing, but learning quickly. Earlier this year I bought a used Meyers Plow, with an e-46 on it. (It also came with an extra e-47)

    The Current Pump (e-46) needs service done to it, so I was going to swap it out with the e-47.

    My question is that the e-46 has two contact terminals on the motor. (One terminal has one wire, the other terminal has two wires.) And the e-47 only has one terminal.

    Does this have to do with power angling? If it does, i'm confused, because I would have thought the e-47 had that option.

    Anyways, how would one go about this? Do I connect all 3 wires to the single terminal? Or do I leave one wire disconnected? Let me know!

    I believe that the motor with 2 lugs....One lug is a ground, the other is the power .....The one with 1 lug grounds through the housing of the motor. Do not hook all 3 wires to that one lug...it will short out.
