    I have a older FISHER setup with under hood belt pump and valve. The valve must be worn as the blade will slowly drop over time. Is there a rebuild kit for them or what is the cost of a new one and is there a online source for them. Thanks :)

    Hi you could rebuild it, but I would just get a new one. I priced it out last year for about 250.00

    I've got the same setup. Mine slowly drops for about the first 15-20 minutes also, sometimes when you least expect it and I don't have a snow foil so its instant white out, dangerous. I've got to do something also. Is it maybe an adjustment at the control valve? I've had mine totally apart before and there isn't alot to them. Biggest thing you would need is the special o-rings.

    another thing to remember

    I have the same setup, older fisher an all. I replaced the valve, something told me when was tired an not paying attention i would forget then the blade would hit the ground. My luck it would be on the highway going 50mph.

    The shop that i use replaced it, they said they dont get into kits. I cant fight my equipment an make money at the same time, so my reasoning is fix it right an move on.

    Good luck this season,

    Lee

    There is no rebuild kit for these. The spools are machined specifically for each valve. It will have to be replaced
