    I have a chance to buy an E57 locally that looks to be in great shape. I have an E47 that I just put new valves & solenoids in....is the E57 that much better or should I just stick with what I have? What would be the advantages with the E57? I'm plowing with an old 6.5 on a Jeep Cherokee Sport. Any thoughts would be helpful.
    Thanks !

    Only differences is the larger 4.5" motor, higher volume pump, and will have the SAE O-ring style couplers. The 57 will be faster, that's it.

    Most guys who normally run E57's and 60's fall asleep while waiting for their E47's. Including me. :D

    As B&B said speed, but as a plus you can use all your new coils and soleniods from your E-47 on a E-57.

    Disappointed? Probably but that can only be answered for certainty by you. If you're accustom to the speed and decent lifting power of the 57's and 60's I'd have to say yes you would be.

    The 57's are a little better than a 60 in their motor longevity since they're vertically mounted so it reduces corrosion issues on the motor that the 60's are well know for. The biggest disadvantage with the 57 over the 60 though is that they have no drop speed adjustment as I'm sure you're aware of. But either would be quicker than a 47.
