Old T-5 and 6ft Meyer blade

    I bought my truck (1ton Dodge 4x4) with a plow mount from the local town government last year. This past winter I had a home made plow that I welded up real quick, no power anything, just enough to push the snow off my driveway (1/4 mile gravel). It worked fine, but I've had my eyes open for a real plow.

    Last week I picked up a 6ft Meyer plow and T-5 rig for $220. The pump seems to work fine, it integrated with my Meyer joystick control and wiring harness no problem. I know the 6ft blade is a little small for a full size truck, and the lack of power angle may suck come winter, but for the money I couldn't pass it up. I'll also have to weld on the frame a little as the 6ft blade has a smaller A-frame width than the 8ft blade that the city used.

    Questions are:

    1. Is it possible to add power angle to a blade like this? NorthernTool and TSC sell cylinders I can use, and I can pick up a used E47 or E60 pump. But what is gonna take to mount the cylinders? Anything I can check on the A-frame to see if it is even possible?

    2. Assuming I keep the T-5 Is there anything I can do to it to prolong its life, since parts are no longer available?

    Anything else?
