    Hi everyone, new member here with a question. I bought a meyers st-90 plow with underhood hydraulics. The setup is for a dodge w150. My original idea was to hook up the hydraulics to the power steering but now in wanting a electric Meyer e46 or e47. My question is how harD is it to convert this setup to one of those pumps? What do I all have to do and where can I find one of these pumps for cheap? Links or any advice much appreciated. Thanks!

    Well, E46 is trivial. Its literally a 2-wire system. High current to run the motor for "up", low current to run the solenoid for "down/float". E47 adds in a little bit of complexity for going side-to-side.

    If you can make your question a little bit more specific, it might be easier/possible to answer it.

    You need a pump, 2 switches,a harness, battery cables and a solenoid. Up is power to battery solenoid only, down is power to coil on back of pump only. Left and right are power to solenoid and either coil on side of pump. The pump assembly should bolt right into where your lift piston is.
