    I bought a 91 f350 with an old fisher cable driven electric hydralic pump on it in short the guys at the shop said its probably not worth fixing its gonna be a small fortune to fix it. he said he might be able to mount a meyers e60h in there is this possible? and i got a e60 whats the difference? thanks

    what is wrong with the fisher that could be expensive. what does it do or not do. i bet you could have it working tonight with some help from this group. the money to cobble in that E-60 will cost more than fixing the one you have.

    tell us whats wrong with it.

    The H means high lift if I remember . As far as mounting, I have not tried that swap yet .

    if you jump the soloenoid the motor runs. thats all it will do won't raise won't lower no side to side. Plow hasn't been used in 5yrs atleast. he said the valves are probably shot and the cables are def. frozen. I guess ill find out after they tear the motor apart. thanks though was just curious what my options were

    I think your going to be much better off getting that one going.

    The first thing I would do is un screw the covers on the this side of the pump where the cables go into, spray them down with some Fluid Film or WD40. Let it rest for overnight. Drain, clean, and refill the oil / reservoir, clean or replace the filter attached to the pump inside the reservoir. Not sure if you've even tried the joystick yet, but if it were me, I would disconnect the cables at the pump, momentarily and work the valves back and forth manually first, but you can simply try using the joystick if you want to, just be careful not to force it if it binds up on you.

    The most your going to waste is some hydraulic oil and time!

    repo hits it right on the head. unhook the cables and run it by hand. these are really easy most of the time. you can change the cables yourself in 40 minutes if you are handy. now is the time to learn how to fix it yourself. read the manual and ask questions if you need help. 2 new cables are easy to get on this site.

    No sweat.

    I can't find the pictures I had taken last year, but here are a few others...don't mind the mess, my son wanted to do one on his own, as you can see he made one heck of a mess. Just stay organized while doing this and you won't have anywhere near a mess on your hands.

    The Manual also has good blow up pictures.
