    i posted a few weeks ago about my plow pins bending, the way i noticed it is that i was trying to change out the old rams, well now for some reason they dont make aftermarket rams for my plow, all the ones i order come 1/4 i need the o-ring style....been on the phone for several days with people most insisting that they only make one style ram and :cry: :cry: thats with 1/4 pipe thread? but yet i went on the fisher site and there they are, o-ring style rams.... today i contacted a truck dealer that sells fishers and was told that the two 1 1/2 x 12's and the one 1 1/2 x 10 would cost around $620.40 ? could this be right???

    All you need to do is change the rt angle fittings to 1/4" pipe X 1/4 pipe, from o-ring boss X 1/4" pipe, they're only a couple of $ each. Use a teflon pipe sealant or teflon tape on the threads to make sure there is a good seal. Most NAPA stores carry hydraulic fittings or any hydraulic shop.
    Just thought, some plows have the hoses attaching directly to the rams, then you just need an adapter from 1/4"pipe to o-ring boss, again a pretty cheap part and commonly stocked by any hydraulic shop.
