    Hey,

    I am new to this site, but here goes:

    I just picked up a 9' Fisher plow, pump, frame mounts, valve body (2 to be exact) and control for a 94-02 Dodge Ram. My question is has anyone ever used a hydraulic setup for a Dodge Diesel? Fisher has a pdf for 94-97 (12 valve) diesels...but I should also be able to run this setup. Anyways, I am going to need some mounting brackets for the valve body and possibly for the pump.

    I have owned Fisher speedcast plows in the past, never mounted one, and have always prefered them over electric pumps.

    Any info would be appreciated!

    I second Macdiesel's question. I just bought a Speedcast for my '90 Dodge W250 Cummins turbo diesel but the clearance between the pulley and fan is about 3/4 of an inch - no place for a hydraulic pump pulley. I want to avoid going electric over hydraulic.

    2low4nh,
    Is there any way that you can get a pic from the passenger side of the truck looking over the hydraulic pump in line to the pulley on the motor? Hopefully my pictures attached of my rig showing what I mean. As you can see on my 1990, there is little room for an extra pulley. I'm thinking about going off the alternator pulley even though it's smaller. I'll fab something to position the pump and re-route the cold air intake. Any thoughts from anyone reading this?
    By the way, I just came from my local Fisher dealer and they were zero help - told me that my 5.9 was an 8 cylinder...

    I will try and get a picture this week. I have the remote fluid resivoir but the pump is mounted directly over the top of the ALT the bracket is homemade but very simple. Running a v belt up to the pump it barely clears the hood though. my controls are mounted in the rear near firewall by the turbo

    If all you told them was 5.9L its a honest mistake, Dodge was making a 5.9L V8 gasser at the same time they were installing the 5.9L CTD.

    I even told them slowly that it is Cummins Turbo Diesel.

    Are you talking about a conventional mount (non Minute Mount) SpeedCast?
