Wiring a Meyer Plow

    I just purchased a meyer plow. (Not sure what model it is). All the wires are hooked up at the box. It has the 3 plug in wires running thru the wiring harness that plug into wires that come off of the motor and pump. I have the power wire coming off the motor a little white wire that I am not sure where to hook up. I believe it would normally go to a solonoid but I am putting this plow on a Dodge M880 military pickup and it does not have a normal solonoid. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Ok I will check it out. I am more used to western plows having a solonoid under the hood, but my truck does not have a traditional one. Its more like a small box with slip on connectors. Thank you so much for your imput. Pat

    :confused:the solenoid I'm referring to is independent of the trucks electrical system.

    Ok so were talking seperate solonoid with power cable coming from plow motor going to one side of a solonoid the other side would go to battery and the white wire would attatch to one of the posts on the solonoid. Right ?
