old tired Boss

    So, I bought an old Boss for $600.00 it needs a new ram. The motor burned out and I had no ready cash available-like $295.00 for a new motor. So, lucky me knows a guy who re-builds DC motors. If I hadn't known better, I would have been screwed. He did a fine job! The bad part was getting it to line up with the pump coupler. I had to have the old bearing taken out of the pump, but after I figured it out ( line them up straight up and down.) It went together perfectly.
    This was the one with a busted power stud I was seeking advice for. Also! Do not!! buy the off brand motors! Buy a Bosch motor, they are built better to take the cycles and last longer. Back up now and plowing again.
