    Hi guys and gals, I'm a new member of the plowsite although I have been lurking for a while.(great site by the way!)
    I'm not sure if this is in the proper section, if not, please forgive me.
    I have plowed in the past, years ago, not going into commercial, just my own driveway.
    I just picked up a 7.5' meyers blade with pistons, and a quick mount with pump and headlights (it's a tube).
    I have no idea what the headlight/pump mount came off (got them at the junkyard)
    My question is this, the pump looks to be an E60 but I have not found any numbers to support that assumption, i did find "AMJ4739" it does say it's made in slovenia (spelling?)
    I want to mount this on an older F150 (I have lots of fab skills and tools) The pump has 3 wires, a red, green and black as well as the power red and black, from searching around the web it appears that I need a solenoid to operate the pump, correct? If this is the case, do i need to activate this solenoid with each switch movement? I have a pretty good understanding of how the wiring works and each operating mode. I don't want to buy a factory switch or touch pad but would if I had to.
    Thanks in advance,
    dave

    Hi Dave,
    and welcome to plowsite. I'm not too familiar with meyers equipment but you might find more help and answers with this question by posting it in the Meyer/Diamond Products Discussion forum. Sorry I couldnt be much help on this one but welcome again and keep asking. There are many good people here with loads of knowledge on all subjects willing to share.
