    What are the long bars that bolt to the plow and extend under the truck for? There are 2 on this plow set up I bought for my K-1500. Also the cable operated plows any positives and negatives to them?
    thanks

    I believe the bars are designed to bolt to the transmission crossmember. They transfer some of the stress of plowing to the back of the frame.

    Cable style are very simple operation not much to go wrong. Keep a extra cable and solenoid handy.

    When I removed the pump I didn't have see a solenoid. Where does it go? The stabilizer's are not included on all plows? Are they necessary? Mine are pretty rusty. I could probably blast them and paint them and run them the way they are. I'm finding parts are very expensive. I didn't see any electrical devices on this plow it seems like it is all hydraulic. The cable system has zero electronics going to it

    All hydraulic means no solenoid. Is it a Fisher? Parts are very expensive, but they are reliable plows.

    It is a fisher plow. It needs some sandblasting and painting but it worked fine when I removed it. It doesn't need any parts I was very careful to take everything! The onlyproblem is the mount for the pump. It uses a sepentine like my truck but it is different. So I had to take the entire front of the engine and willhave to use all the brackets alternator power steering pump and a/c from the plow truck. All my brackets were blasted and powder coated. Now I have to remove them

    It might be worth buying a new bracket for your specific truck. Check out this page. Part #26 is the pump mounting bracket.

    Although the bracket is probably correct. That diagram has a different front end than mine. The side hydraulics stay on the plow on my setup

    Stork's wanted $400 for new and $300 for used. What a rip off. I'll make one before that
