    I've seen those old units scabbed to the inner fenders and underhood and some PTO cables rigged to work the levers also. Not to mention a few i've seen with 1/4" solid rod bent and through the firewall used to activate the levers.

    They were intended to be mounted in the cab though .

    I got a kick out of that as well, although that cutting edge looks just as bad as the rest of the set up!

    Not to go out on a limb here, but im pretty sure that thing needs more than an edge

    I think that is about the same setup I had on my first plow truck, a 51 Willys PU. Hoses ran all the way in to the cab. I plowed with it for 3 - 4 season and had no problems with it. Mine was in a little better shape, but that was like 34 years ago.

    It is a old Monarch unit and a lot were mounted on the passenger floor next to the transmission tunnel. That is why us old guys have longer right arms-we had to lean over to operate it

    forgot to mention that it was rare for them to fail. What would happen was the contact spring would break-so you carried spares. The contact spring was at the center of the far control rod. It would make contact to go up or down-powered each way. If you look closely you will see the spring that centered the rod between the contact points
