    i was givien a western 7 foot blade, a-frame, mount, lights, and pump. im trying to put it all together, everything works, it has a isramatic mark 3 pump, the cable operated one, but im putting it on my 2006 silverado. i was curious if i could swap out the cable operated pump for a electronic one, since i am only doing my driveway and a couple houses around me. figured it would be easier and alot cleaner of an install if i could do the electric one. and some new lights, does anyone know what pump i could use? and wiring for it and the lights. or where to even start looking, maybe some part numbers? thanks in advance!

    depends on how much money you want to get into. i have both pumps and i have to say but the mark 3 is by far the most dependable but you can find the electronic pump out there then you have to buy the wiring harness and controler. check ebay for the pumps and wiring harness.

    True but i dont have the cables or the joystick for them. and this is a 2006 silverado so i wasnt sure how hard it would be to do a cable pump. couldnt i get a meyer pump and harness? or any electric pump and harness i can find?
