Need help with a *T* handle

    I have a conventional mount cable controlled plow with the "old" T handle.
    Had to take it apart awhile ago to move it, now need a parts diagram so I can put it back together.
    I can't find ANY information on the old *T* handle controllers. Lots on the joy stick for cable but not the T.
    Anyone know where I can get any info ?

    Also does anyone know if the newer joy stick with the black cables will work to controll an older red cabled T handle plow?

    I don't think I've even seen a "T" handled one before. Maybe this was prior to D&D intervention. Could you post a pic? I would think the newer cable operated joysticks would work just fine, that is if the "T" handle is in fact a cable operated joystick.?.

    I used to have a standard with a t-handle. Good dependable plow. I still have the old t-handle. I switched to a joystick, liked it better. The t-handle had non adjustable cables, the joystick had adjustable ones. I don't remember, but I don't think they were interchangeable. I do remember the cables would freeze up sometimes. I sure miss that old truck.

    Thanks for posting that. I had never seen one before. However the pump that it goes to looks to be nothing more then a EHP or whatever Western calls theirs.

    From what I could find, you can update that to a newer style cable control joystick. I couldn't find any breakdowns of the T handle style however. Just a few actual controllers listed for sale on EBay, that you've already located yourself.

    Would you be interested in selling it?

    Do you remember if the connections at the pump were the same?

    The connections are the same, just adjustable cables. Let me get it out, I'll see what all I have. I think I still have the cables connected.
