    I have a Meyer E47 that I just bought. Came with the truck. It goes up slow & angles left/right slow.

    I'm thinking it's the valves or clogged screen? But, I've been told that Meyer's are slow like that compared to Western.

    I have a Western also on my other truck.

    What do you guys think?

    Thanks
    Jim

    All you can do is a pressure test. E47's are painfully slow if you have used any of the newer pumps.

    Thanks!

    Can the E47's be swapped out for any of the newer pumps? Or, do you have to buy the whole thing?

    E57/58 pump and motor will bolt up to your base. But may be cheaper to find a used e60 or e57.

    I'll most likely sell it. Not worth the headaches. Going to put a Western on it anyways.
