    i helped my dad with this project, took the plow off the ford and put it on the chevy

    it didnt cost that much to convert it. $25 for the push plates, $55 for pump bracket, and a few other things

    Same here i love the older trucks and plows. See if you can clean off that piston ram. Smooth that down. You can mess up the piston with that. Make sure you spray the hell out of it with FLUID FLIM too.

    I'm feeling all nostalgic with that conventional Fisher & the under-hood hydraulics. Should make for a great setup. That's a pretty old controller, eh? Good luck!

    Can't beat a good ol' Speecaster conventional. Until I got my MM, it's all I ever had. Never let me down once and they got a good amount of work. They were on F250's
