    Does anyone have any pictures of a Fisher belt drive pump installed on an older (70-80) Dodge with a 318 engine? I am putting together a backup truck, 77 Dodge W200, ex-army. I changed the "Armstrong" steering to power steering, got the whole system from a junker. The truck had a monstrous 24 volt auxiliary alternator, I took it off and may wind up using that mounting for the plow pump.

    I could also use any information about a Fisher wing. I haven't seen it yet, but am supposed to be getting it this week. Supposedly it has all the mounts, hoses, valve, and controls. Since it was probably designed for a cab and chassis setup, I may have to lift the box to install it, then cut the sheet metal to fit around it when I lower the box back down.

    Here's a 1974 W100 with the 318, Fisher hydraulic setup:
    This isn't what's shown in the Fisher diagram, obviously. I bought the plow used about 6 years ago, brought everything to a local shop including the Fisher diagram, they claimed it couldn't be mounted that way so did it this way, with the pump right above the power steering pump--belt runs off a second, outer groove in the fan pulley. Works great.

    Not the best photo, I know--if you want a better look I can take my digital camera out there and get some detail shots.
