    We buy alot from them, The E47 is a slower unit, I would try to find a E60 to replace it, the time you save is a big deal. Just my $.02

    You can't swap an E60/E57/E58 style motor onto an E47 unless you also upgrade the gear pump to the E57/E58 style, which would turn your E47 into an E57. It's a good upgrade if you need to replace the pump and motor anyway, but it's not very cost effective just to do it as an upgrade as the E57 motor and pump will cost you about $300 alone.

    I'm sure what C&C meant about finding an E60 was to ditch the E47 and find a good used complete E60.

    B&B, you right, what I was talking about, was buying a E60 pump to replace it, and then you could see the E47 or use it as a spear.

    THe Central Parts Warehouse link above can help.
    Millsupply.com has parts.
    Order the repair / rebuild manual from one of them.
    Consider cost too. The pump can be done by you, a shop that does pumps or shipped to a repair shop that does plow pumps.

    I did mine in black hammerite paint, it looked really nice. The paints really aged now so it don't look so good now.
