    Hey I just picked up a MM2 and I had to convert it from a 3 wire to a 2 wire since the truck only had 2 plugs. I transfered the wires over with out a problem, but when i was taking off the ground wire attatched to the plow motor I broke the bolt its attached to. Does anyone know if that bolt is replacable it looks like it screws directly into the motor, or do I have to weld another bolt onto get a grounding spot again?? Thanks

  3. Ground Stud

    On mine, the ground connection is a stud. [​IMG] [​IMG]If I remember correctly, the stud unscrews from the motor housing. Is yours a stud or was it just a bolt ??? Either way, try cutting a slot in whatever is left, and take a good screwdriver and try to turn it out. Soak it with WD40 or PB blaster for a while before you attempt to turn it. Let us know how you make out.

    Wouldn't you be able to use a stud welder and just blast another stud on the motor case somewhere. It is just a ground.

    I just re-read the first post and see that the screw in question might be screwed into the motor making my post useless sorry.

    This is a bit off topic, but where does the black / orange wire go in the picture. Is it a ground from the motor to the frame? I bought a used pump to convert my belt driven hydraulic to the insta act and that cable is cut.

    Thanks,
