    i just picked up a 99 chevy 3500 srw 2 months ago and a buddy of mine is giving me his barely used speedcast for free. i love the old speedcast plows, except for the belt driven pump. my local plow shop installs monarch electric/hydraulic units on the old speedcasts. but they want $2000 for it. is there another way of doing this at a lower cost?

    I don't se why you couldn't take an electric/hydrolic pump off a MM1 and put it on your Speed Cast.

    That is crazy. You can also get a hyd. unit. I used a Fenner set up. See my Diamond conversion and you will see how I did it.

    the easiest will be an Shep pump, controller, relay, power cable and some wiring

    not one of my truck use original fisher wiring they all use my home made control and lighting wiring witch is basically a 3 plug set up 1 power ( fisher original) 1 control (a flat 4 pin trailer plug ) and 1 light ( trailer plug round 6 pin )

    I put a haldex snow plow unit under the hood of my truck.I found it on Ebay for cheap. I also installed a 200 amp alternator. My lights don't dim very much at all and the blade lifts real nice. Northern tool has one on their site.

    What year truck did it come off? It's technically illegal to put that plow on a 99 truck. But you wouldn't be the first;)

    I believe it came off a 96 chevy 2500. Why is it illegal?

    A SEHP will mount to a speedcast triangle and upright. You could convert the Speedcast plow and A-frame to a MM1 uprights and set up. If you could find a MM1 with a SEHP without the plow and A frame you would be good. Then you would have to get the truck side mounts as well.

    Can someone tell me what OBS means.

    OBS means old body style. I think I'm gonna find the sehp pump and go from there.

    for the shep pump there is one in sherbrook an hour and a half from montreal http://www.lespac.com/outils-materiaux/equipements-saisonniers/sherbrooke/d-fisher-LPaZZ24298970WWcpZZ83WWgrZZ10

    and there is a user here NHresident i buy few thing from him without any problem ( 2 push plate set, few controller and a insta-act pump) you can pm him i am pretty sure i got one in hands and can help you out with the wiring

    or you can custom built your wiring to save few $ if you got electric skill ( its not hard just double and triple check before power up to make sure you controller is not gonna fry)

    If the trucks look basically the same, it will fit. They are both 350 engines?

    Any pickup/SUV built after Jan 94 cannot have a permanently attached plow mount extend past the front bumper.

    Bob00, can you tell me what you used to make your own wiring. I've never done this so I'd appreciate the help. Thanks
