    Hello guys
    I need some help. Long story short I have a 8-2V conventional style that got destroyed by a man hole cover. I have a 7-6 western straight blade sitting in the yard. I would like to run the pump and lift from the 8-2 that is already on the truck and hook up the 7-6 blade. I have figured out the blade attachment but I need to figure out the new controller to the pump. I am thinking right wing in together with left wing out for angle right. Left wing in together with right wing out for angle left. Up and down should stay the same. Let me know if it is that simple or do I need to do some thing else.

    I think you will need to do left wing out for right and right wing out for left. Right and left wing in capped.

    Pretty sure the 2V will have 2 way pistons while the strait blade will have 1 way pistons.
