    I picked up this truck that came with a plow. Could anyone help me identify it. It had zero decals and numbers that I can see.

    My issues is the centuries controls are bad as is one of the tilt cams. I'm trying to find out a model or something so I can wire a up/down switch (which is all I need) I can manually turn the plow if needed

    that plow is all cable op. Meaning there is a cable that engages the up down and angling valves. Not to over simplify but is like a throttle cable on a lawn mower. You move the lever it pulls or pushes a cable that moves a control. On the drivers side of the pump as you are looking at it. The one with the hex shaped cover is for angling and the one closer to the lift ram is for up and down.

    So there isn't a way to use a switch? I'll need to buy a new joystick?

    Hello. No electric switch setup possible. All controled by manual joystick and cables. [​IMG]
