E60 pump drops C-8 too hard

    I swapped out my Meyer 7.5 snowplow blade for my heavier C-8 plow blade on my 1998 K3500 one ton Chevy 4x4. All went well except now the E-60 pump drops the plow so hard and fast that it'll break out the plow lights! Would someone please share with me how to adjust the pump to drop the plow slower/softer as to not damage things? Thanks for any helpful advice in advance! Don:dizzy:

    On front of pump next to angle block is 2 caps. One is a filter and the other is the drop adjustment. A slight turn to the right will slow the drop down.

    The plug with the red circle is the one with the drop speed screw behind it.Remove it and use a 3/16 hex wrench to adjust the drop speed.Like lawnmedic said, give it about a quarter turn clockwise to slow the speed down.Be sure and reinstall the plug before trying the plow as if you leave it out it will spray fluid out and make a mess.

    Thread the set screw all the way (bottom it out) and then adjust is back out about 1-1/2 turns, this should be just right (you may have to fine tune it a little one way or the other). Be sure to put the plug back in before you test it, or you will loose some fluid when you run it.

    I had the same problem. I adjusted the screw and the plow drops slow enough, but what keeps the screw
    from backing out again. It was fairly loose in there.
