    im trying to mount my old conventional belt driven fisher plow in a Chevy 6.5 diesel, I got the fisher part numbers for the brackets but they told me that the parts are discontinued and they cant get them, does anyone know of a place to get the brackets, or is mounting some kind of electric pump an option?? Thanks

    I dont see why you couldnt mount an electric pump...would be pretty costly if you ask me...Find a junk yard and see if they have the part. If you hae access to materials and supplies I would make your own. I would think that the junk yard would be ur best bet if everyone is saying that they are discontinued. If you look enough youll find what your looking for..

    thats a complicated kit to find or build. Do yourself a favor and go electric, Sehps are plentiful and reasonable.

    I converted my horizontally mounted Fenner pump to verticle one like an Insta-act pump mounted on a MM1 upright. See the link in my signature.It took some fabrication but it works great.

    I converted an old Fisher belt driven set up (missing most of the hydraulics) to electric for my old Chevy. Picked up a used Meyer E-60 and fabbed a taller mount for it. Worked great - controlled it through a Western Fishstick.

    In my opinion, it was easier and cheaper than chasing down all the components for the belt driven parts.

    Cool. Plows don't care what hydraulic system is controlling the cylinders. Got any pics of your set up Greco

    Exactly!
    Unfortunately, I don't have any pics!! :(
    I built it a few years back (before I was a member) before I realized how important it is to track my projects with pictures. I'll look again and see if there's something kicking around. It was an awesome set-up - allthough a mongrel for sure;
    8' Fisher blade
    Speedcast headgear for a mid 70's suburban
    Meyer E-60 pump
    Western 6-pin controller
    Lit with universal Truck-Lite plow lights
    All on a 92 Chevy K2500
    There was lots of cutting and welding required - and well worth it.

    I sold the truck 3 or so years ago, and now it plows the streets of Randolph, MA.

    Not great shots of the plow set-up, but you can see a little of it. The 3rd pic is of the bumper I put together with some scrap tubing I had.
    Oh, and don't know me for having the tail-light louvers - they were on the truck when I bought it - and I hated them!
