    Hello everyone. I have a meyers st90 off of a 73 Dodge S/N . I got the truck cheap used it one year before it fell apart. So I put the plow on my 86 GMC 3/4 sub. It was a quickie job but now I am using the plow offten. The contols for the plow are rods that run from dash to a valve mounted on inner fender. This was ok for home use but now its a pain to lean over and pull and push rods under dash. Also inner fender is weak and moving around and valve is now leaking. My question is there a way to change the controls to a newer style(dare a touch pad or joy stick)? If not is there somewhere I can get parts to fix leaking valve? Thanks for any help.

    Sounds like you have an old engine driven pump and mechanical valves. Your cheapest solution would be to pick up an E47 and a harness with dual toggle switches. Craigslist or Ebay.

    this is one option... or you can find a Fisher spool valve and cable controls with the 4 way T-handle...

    if you find a new setup, I will buy your old belt-driven pump and controls from you. I am in need of a replacement pump for my system.
