    I just bought an old what seems to be Meyers plow and has a strange hydraulic setup, looks like a starter motor on one end and a pump on other end. it's mounted under the bumper with a line going to lift ram and one to each angle rams. does anyone have a clue what I have besides junk probably ha

    it is what was available at the time. Not a Ford guy at all. A guy ran a stop sign and totaled my daughters' 93 Club Cab Dodoge W250 diesel.
