    Anyone know anything about meyer e-88 pump? Wanted to know if it would fit a older e-47 rack and would a touch pad controller work it? Also if the power angle connecctions are the same? Thanks

    Technically it would fit but the E88 is specific to the EZ mount Express plows,which are the ones with the extra vertical hydraulic cylinder that clamps the plow to the brush guard thats attached to the truck. The E88's do share some parts with the E57H, and its grand dad the E47H but they use the updated valves/coils with the extra ground terminal on each coil and they have the newest version of the quick couplers.(yes,now theirs 3 different types of couplers from Meyer) It will have extra valves in the valve block to control the vertical "clamp" cylinder that you wouldn't use on your application. As to using your existing touch pad,it could be done but you'd need a custom built harness between the pump and the touch pad since the E88 is designed to use it's own specific harness which would also have functions that you wouldn't need so it wouldn't be cost effective to buy a harness for an Express and then chop it up to work on your older set up. All in all,if your just looking to upgrade your E47 I'd recommend replacing it with an E57 or E60 instead of the E88.
