    I have a older under hood setup a Meyers and the lift pump needs either a rebuild or replace; I have recently replaced the A frame,lift cylinders and angle cylinders. Is there any where I can get a replacement pump? any ideas? thanks

    go to norther tools on line and you can buy a nice barnes pump with a rocker switch box ready to go for around $600.00 .its a lot better than the meyers junk. but you have have room under the hood for the unit. you must have an older truck for it to fit. www.northertools .com

    Wow! For that money, you could buy a Fisher pump and valve body, and you'd have a system that's actually reliable.

    Does a Meyers under-hood system use a separate valve body? If so, you could get just a Fisher pump and bracket.

    Just my 2 cents... arguably worth that.

    You could probably find a old Ford truck with a plow for $600 (a beater). Take the parts off that you need, and part-out the rest or keep some for spares.
