    Who sells these things--solenoids, valves, pump if I can't figure the thing out. Anywhere recommended for service ? T.I.A. , Rolf :drinkup:

    Keep your eye out for Crash935. He is alot of help when it comes to service/ Tech Questions. What brand of equipment are you running? Personally I am not a fan of Hoekstra. Received cocky attitude a few times. Went in with questions, and left without looking back. (From the Parts/Service Counter)

    Damn good place on Ravine road down the street from the nudie bar in Kalamazoo.

    Extreme was their name then. Use to carry tons of stuff.

    It's a Monarch pump mounted next to #1 cylinder under the hood, and it's sticking on the upstroke. A little tap on a valve (?) behind the solenoid stops it, although today there were times it didn't want to actuate at all

    B+B Truck Equipment has always treated me well. They are on 100th, a bit West of 131. Phone 616-878-1120. They specialize in Boss but carry other stuff. I guess call to see if they can help you.

    You can call Monarch directly in Grand Rapids. They are an excellent company to do business with, and the oldest continuously operating company in the state of Michigan, older than GM, Ford, or your local gas and electric company. Excellent equipment, I have always used their hydraulic belt driven systems exclusively, with no failures.

    Mason Dynamics near FifthThird Ball Park rebuilds and services Monarch pumps and has been for longer than I have been plowing snow (about 40 years) They'll get you going.
