    Is it still mounted to the Ford? Hopefully it is so you can check the pump and valve condition. Should be able to raise the blade without revving the engine, and the blade should stay up once it's lifted.

    Engine bracket is still available new from Fisher, you may have to do a little fabricating for mounting the valve and joystick.

    no was not mounted to truck...but older gent bought truck to plow w/ but discovered frame was cracked so decided to sell off everything and buy something else. seems all there plow blade in real good shape fisher emblem not even worn off moldboard, had cutting edge installed from day one. price was really good @ 900$$$!! Now, I have a MM1 6'9" w/ insta- act pump and fishstick control. would like to have the fishstick control but I really don't want to cobble up a complete plow set-up..what do you guys think belt driven hyd. or insta-act? BTW I will be selling the pushplate(off 94 F150) if there are any takers. probably will be selling the small MM1 set-up also.
