    Ok, so I did some horse trading and got my hands on a brand spanking new E58H! :mechanic:
    It has the Meyer fitted cover. It's never had oil in it unless Meyer tests them before shipping them out.
    I guess the first thing I need to order is an adapter cable to hook it up to my red, green and black wires.
    Anything else I should know?
    I am replacing an E47/E60 setup on my truck, my lift arm has two holes in it. I haven't even taken it out of the truck yet as I had a bad muscle spasm yesterday in my back and can barely walk much less carry anything that heavy.
    Any advice is greatly appreciated.
    thanks,
    dave

    You will need the hydraulic fittings as well for the conversion, Meyer p/n 08128 has the electrical and hyd adapters in it.

    TY:mechanic:
    I saw the kit but figured I could make the hydro connections up as needed. Why is the "kit" almost a hundred bucks when the electrical part alone is only 20 bucks?

    Ok, most important thing here is to read page one of the link I am providing. Specifically the part where it tells you to drill a new hole in your lift arm. If you don't do this the first time you raise your plow, the unit will hit the frame and destroy the tank or/both break the base. Also, the low spill couplers are expensive, buy adpaters and convert it to the old style copulers, much cheaper. But you do need the harness, which is inexpensive.

    thanks for that link, I guess I'll be drilling a new hole! I was actually thinking about making a new bracket for the pivot end, raising it up 2 inches but it doesn't look like that is the answer.

    I knew it was just a matter of time before someone wanted pics..LOL :mechanic:
    I will try to remember to take some on Thursday as I have that day off.

    Did I mention this one is all black? All the pics I see on the net are yellow.
