Quick question on Meyer E60 pump

    I just got a E60 on Ebay, and it is a 2 terminal motor. I pulled out the trusty multimeter and both terminals appear to be the same electrically. I could not find any info on what the 2 are supposed to be, so if anybody knows what the deal with 2 terminals are, let me know. Do I hook up to one or the other, or both? Whats the difference?

    Thanks,
    Kevin

    1 of the term is for the positive wire from the solinoid and the other one is for the ground for the whole pump...Rob

    There is a third terminal that looks like it would be the ground (would definitely be the ground if the motor only had one terminal :) ). How do I tell the difference between the two remaining terminals that are on the motor? One is labeled A2 and the other is labeled D1 (stamped in case).

    e 60 motor wiring

    Service Bulletin #182 R1

    The terminal marked "A2" is the positive connection that goes to the solenoid.

    The terminal marked "D1" is the Ground. There should be a short wire going from motor terminal "D1" to the grounding terminal on the hydraulic unit. Then another ground wire from the hydraulic unit to battery ground.

    I would look at Meyer web site and look for the service bulletin # 182 R1

    Thanks, thats exacty the info I needed. However, I cannot find any way to look up Service Bulletins on Meyers website? Any way you can help me out with a link, or point me to a copy of it somewhere else?

    Thanks,
    Kevin

    I did, but the manual is of no help whatsover with wiring the 2 terminal motor. Even the cheesy diagrams illustrate ground going to the case, and power going to a 1 terminal motor. If you see a page I overlooked showing the 2 terminal motor wiring, let me know, but I could not find it.

    Thanks,
    Kevin

    Go to www.meyerproducts.com, click on the tab that says service&support, then click on service manuals, then click on quicklift power units service manual and you are there, either print it or download it, I would suggest to print it so you can carry it with you to the driveway to work on the plow now and in the future.

    What gauge wire should be from D1 to the case? Is that just for the solenoids? Maybe 14 gauge? Nothing else is loading it, correct?

    2 terminal motor

    The same size wire that you have coming from the battery to the grounding terminal on the hydraulic unit is the size wire from the terminal on the motor to the grounding lug on hydraulic unit. The replacement motor comes with one.

    Remember that motor takes 200 + amps when full load so you need much more than a #14 Gage wire to carry that much current at 12VDC.

    Call Meyer in Cleveland at there main number and ask for technical support they can fax or send you that service bulletin. They are very good to all who call.

    I know the motor takes more than a 14 gauge wire, I guess I'm not following why the jumper needs to be larger also. If the motor already has a ground cable attached, whats the jumper for?

    Wiring of Ground

    You are just daisy chaining the ground from the battery to the hydraulic unit to the new E60 motor. You are grounding the hydraulic unit as the coils need a ground also. Meyer just has you hooking wire from battery to the hydraulic unit then a jumper from hydraulic unit to the motor terminal. Yes the hydraulic unit would be grounded from the motor being attached to it how ever in the newer touch pads there is current monitoring so a good ground is needed to allow this to work.
