    this just got delivered.....

    http://hartford.craigslist.org/car/248340411.html

    gonna build one good truck out the this and the 87 i have......
    it was same price as a good snow blower so figured i'd stay warm.....


    the plow has some holes at bottom but i think i can patch the frame
    so water won't leak to the bottom and rust it out anymore.....?

    First Scare

    well had my first freak out.....
    i went to bleed the brakes last night and wanted to do it in the garage, so i cranked it up and tried to lift the plow and NADA !!!!!!
    man i was ticked, it worked last week and now it acts like there ain't no plow on the truck:angry:

    so i get the multimeter out and trace the wiring back from the battery and found an in-line fuse in the power lead was just a little rusty and corroded enough to make the thing tempermental.......
    at least i figured it out and was able to get the plow working again :bluebounc
    off to RadioShack to get a better blade style in-line fuses.....:)

    I know buying used is buying someone elses problems but i didn't think i picked up a lemon... alls well in my little world now.

    BTW my pump is full of ATF. if i replace the fluid every year to keep it fresh can i use it?
    or do i have to switch to the proper stuff your supposed to lube the pump with ?

    TIA

    Hey get that atf out of that pump thats the cheap way to make it work but is going to eat the seals. Sounds like you got a rig that has been band-aided to make it work. Its going to take some time to make it a keeper. I spent tons of time just doing pm work on the rigs but salt and rust is the worst thing on the BII's
