    All I have done so far is straight blade installs. I have been told I will need a new control harness for the first port of my 3 port iso mod and and an adapter to make the different fish stick work for the truck side. For the plow side whats involved in converting that to 3 plug? Will I need new headlamp harness and control harness? I would want to upgrade to the intensifiers at the same time anyways. Anyone done this before..any tips or hints would be helpful.

    If you're already set up with a 3 port Iso...

    Change the control harness on the truck side to a 26346. Purchase a 28800 plow lamp kit and a 26358 plow side control harness and you're good. May need to fab up mounts for the new lights but nothing difficult there.

    Thanks, yea I have just welded angle iron to the tower to allow for the 2 post headlamps. Thanks for those part numbers, I am hoping to leave the wiring in the truck to run straight blades as well when/if I need to swap in a storm. Im sure the harnesses are going to set me back a few bucks at least..hopefully the V plow will pay for itself in no time for my parking lots.

    Instead of leaving the straight harness in it just buy a vee to straight adapter 21792K for $45. That will allow you to run a straight blade with your vee harness. Makes underhood aesthetics a little easier too. There'll be enough plow harness's in there already :nod:

    Nice I will have to look into that. I just picked up the plow this afternoon and for 900 bucks I wont complain for 8.5 V with fishstick and a complete set of old truck wiring. However, it sat for a couple years and the angle pistons have heavy rust on them. So worst case I can replace them, but maybe I will look into having them rebuilt. Is this practical for these pistons? Its gone past pitting and I think as soon as I try to energize it,..I will just wreck the packings anyways. I will try emery cloth and steel wool first. thoughts?

    If they're extremely rusty they'll need to be re-chromed to be reliable. Best to just replace them. Not inexpensive but if you want it reliable you have to pay to play.
