    I'm transferring an hydraulic plow system from a '76 Trail Duster (318) to a '78 Power Wagon.The power steering pump is relocated above the thermostat housing.The hydraulic pump for the plow is where the power steering pump was.Can anyone help me with the brackets to relocate everything??I'm knowledgeable enough to fabricate one's but that would take a whooooole lot of time at my rate of speed.
    Thanks for the advice in advanced.This board is full of infro.

    Why can't you just use the brackets from the Trailduster? If your 78 has a small block in it, it will use the same bracktes.
    If your 78 has a Big block...finding the brackets is gonna be tough, and fabricating them would probably be cheaper and quicker than locating a set. BB plow trucks aren't that easy to find. :(

    Let me know if I can be of any assistance. I've got a good bit of experience with the 72-93 Dodge trucks. :waving:
