    Can anyone tell me how to change the pump motor on my Homesteader? How long does it take to do?
    Thanks

    There are two long bolts on the end of the motor near the electrical connections.

    Unplug the plow from power and remove the + and - electric wires.

    Loosen both long bolts slowly and together. Once fully loosened, you can slide the motor straight out of the hydraulic pump.

    I suggest when you install the new motor, you use some sealant (silicone, etc.) to seal around all mating surfaces and bolt holes.
    The enemy of these motors is moisture that gets in and freezes.

    I bought my last replacement on eBay for around $90.00 That was far less than the $200 the Fisher dealer charged for the one before.

    Thats kinda of what I thought but wasn't sure, thanks.
    I found one for $84 and feel that's a fiar price compared to the $200 Fisher wants.
