    Fred,
    Your post is a little hard to read and understand with no puctuation. If you want answers, you should make it a little easier for everyone to read your questions.
    No offense intended.

    welcome to the site fred. I have a new meyer with the e-47 pump, I have never noticed if it lifts hard or not. It could just be normal. But i will check it out the next time i put it on. I hope some of the other guys that use meyer can help.:nono:

    meyer problem

    We run a Meyers 7.5 on an F250 w/the 302 engine, have been for the last 6 or 7 years. I've noticed that the electical system has to recover form the initial engine start, heater warm up, etc., before we get a good strong lift action on the plow. Other than that, we haven't had any problems with it.

    I also have an E-47 pump on my truck. It's about 12 years old, and I haven't noticed that it lifts hard. All my problems are in angling...go figure. :(

    Check the screens (two bolts next to the drain in front) and see if they are ok.

    Sounds like something seriously wrong w/ the pump unit itself. I just traded off a meyer plow this summer (went w/ truck when it was traded). Any how, it was a c-8 w/ an E60 pump on it. Never had any problem like U mentioned. Other problems though where more like pump always drawing moisture from someplace, bad lift solenoids, bad controller pad, and the bugger never did "roll" the snow as well as my Westerns do. I ran the plow for 3 seasons, Now I have a Western MVP.
