    Just wondering if anyone knows what the sizes and type of connector that the snoway plows use. Service manual just gives the length. And whenever I search for them they don't give any details. I would think its a standard fitting type and size, but I could be wrong. The fitting measures 1/2" at the threads.

    1/4 inch NPT.

    1/4 inch is the inside diameter of the tube. This is standard for all plows that I've seen.

    Most Snoway hoses have o-ring fittings not interchangeable with most other brands of Snow plows. They are not designed for use with a tapered fitting and NEVER use Teflon tape on any hydraulics.

    Hoses

    A local auto parts place is making them for me.
    The angle hoses are both tapered fittings and the crossover pump hose is too.
    The 2 hoses to the raise/lower cylinder are tapered on one side and flat with an o-ring on the cylinder side. I have a 25D plow, a little older I think.

    Yeah I have the Fenner pump, and yes of course no Teflon.
    Fittings looked nice to me. Heavier duty then what was on there to begin with.
