    Hey western guys, I am looking at buying an 87 Dodge W250. Guy claims he is running a meyer pump with a 7 foot western blade. Anyone familiar with a setup like this. How long ago did western have a 7 footer?

    Are you sure it's a 7' and not bigger? That's just a cobbled together plow. Meyer pump with western plow. I'm sure there's been some welding going on in there

    I thought the same thing. He insists it is 7 feet. He are a few more pics I had him send me.

    Looks like 3 trip springs, so.that's still a 7'6. It's still a cobbled set up fyi. And a 7' won't clear the truck width

    pics are too small for me to see, but there was a 7' std blade on the 80's style (4 ribs, 2 springs, quadrant hooks up to two ribs with 5/8" bolts), and also there was a 7' in the old 70's style plow (5 ribs, 3 springs, quadrant hooks to 3 ribs with 3/4" pins).
