Identifying old Meyer Pump

    I just picked up a '79 Jeep CJ7 that has an old Meyer setup. Unfortunately, the previous owner completely covered the pump and motor unit with some type of undercoating so I can't identify it. There are also no operator's manuals. There is a lever on the pump that is actuated by a cable that leads into the cab. It is a manual angle plow and the lift arm does not electrically/hydraulically move right now; only by hand and with no resistance. I was told that the pump leaks and I'm sure there's little or no fluid left. I can't even see where the fluid-fill hole is. It probably needs seals at the least, but I don't know where to go for a service book or more information. Any help would be appreciated.

    I believe that is a T series, 1600 model. The bottom line is that you won't find parts for it. I have one (cable operated, power angle) a little newer than that as a spare, and have yet to come across any documentation for it anywhere. Chances are, your plow has the brackets to mount angle rams on it. If that is the case, buy yourself a used E-47 or E-60 unit. You can get angle rams from Northern pretty cheap.

    Is this the pump you have? I looked through some of my old e mail, and this is a T6 pump.

    Chuck, that picture you found looks like the right one! I found the fill plug last night (you can barely see it on the right side of the pump opposite the motor in your picture). I threw some trans oil in it just to see if it would work. It's noisy going up, but seemed to work OK. Then it started dripping at the very bottom of the pump, but not very much right now. What vintage is this unit?

    Thanks,
    Rich

    They make excellent boat anchors, since they no longer sell parts for them. Find a used E47 or E60 pump unit if you plan on doing any serious plowing.:) ;) :) ED
