    I need some help. I am trying to install new elbows and quick connectors on the valve block. I need to remove one coil to turn the elbow out. I took the nut off the center and I can not seem to get the coil out. I tapped on it a little but don't want to break anything. Is there a trick to getting this out of my way?

    That would be the C coil and valve assembly. And when the coil is tough to remove that means the valve stem is swollen thus the valve and coil should be replaced. Otherwise it'll only be a matter of time before it begins to cause angling issue if you don't have them already. It's a super super common thing on the Meyer units.

    :mechanic:it might just be stuck .try to tap screw driver under it from side to side and keep working it if worst comes to worst channel locks turn .chances are 50 50 you can get coil off without destroying it but you have little choice at least nut didnt break off .. if that happens you can drill out 1/4 inch and tap valve and put stud on them .. once you get coil off check valve to see if its swelled if so replace ... add little grease to valve to keep from sticken .also you should clean and grease the outher coils they should all come right off beleave me you dont want one stuck at 3 am in middle of snow storm if so you might want to get the spare out from behind the seat .. been their few times now i never leave to plow without spare coils and spare pump :salute:ussmileyflag

    ussmileyflag any type grease will do. take steal brush to top of valves studs to get rust off.. add little grease if nuts are all rusted putt new ones on apply little grease and just snug nuts that way when one take a dump on ya you can get off without breaking studs off valves .i clean mine after every season..change fluids clean filters to.. we plow 25 commercial lots no residential.but mine i do all my own work on trucks and plows and spreaders... we run 1 bobcat 763 when needed yamaha 660 grizzly with 60 inch moose plow for are big box stores walks 98 chevy 8 ft with wings 95 chevy 8ft with wings meyers e60 pumps lights ezmount set ups with western conventional pro plows. 94chevy 1 ton dulley with 8 ft curtis snow pro 3000 with wings.. all are 4by4.all are gas. run snowex 1075 -575 and western 1000 salt spreaders run 24 skids this winter if you want to make money at it you have to take care of your stuff dont have to be new just looked after and maintained.. good luck with the plowing .. Thumbs Up drinkup: if your not sure how to maintain your pump get a manual it will be money well spent. look on ebay or go to meyers and download it

    Got everything a part with some time and working that coiling little by little. Cleaned everything up and put new elbows and quick connectors on. Put everything together and put it on the truck. Seems to be working fine. This was a pump I got from a friend and he said it did not work. I am learning about these pumps as I go. All info from you guys is a great help and learning exp. Thanks

    I guess that I need to know if everything should be replaced. I just really wanted to see if the pump worked? Any comments would be nice.
