    Hey guys Im putting a 7.5 fisher speedcast on a 85 f-50 with a 300 six. I got the plow off a 86 150 so im sure the plates and wiring will fit. my question is where should i mount the pump on the inner fender? what does that pully line up with on the motor to drive the pump? also is there any way to get instructions on how to mount this stuff? mainly the wiring everything else seems pretty straight forward. Also my plow has arms that go under the front diff and bolt to the frame under the cab. I assume these are to take some stress off the front end and transfer it farther back in the frame. my problem is that one is rusted and I was wondering if they are really needed or just a heavy duty option. thanks for any help

    I got pics of 83 ford engine compartment that has the pump, pump bracket and control valve installed if that would help?

    plow arms are good thing to have, and some people say there not needed if you dont have them

    pump runs off the fisher drive pulley, fisher drive pulley comes off the drive pulley
