• PlowSite Homepage Upgrade

    Hello again PlowSite community,

    I wanted to post a quick note to let you know that the homepage of PlowSite will experience a major upgrade next week. We’re always looking for ways to improve our users’ experience on the site, and felt that this upgrade was needed and long overdue.

    With this upgrade, you’ll now see the top trending posts as soon as you visit PlowSite, and these will be updated throughout the day. You can also easily access videos and photos. As always, we encourage you to include videos and photos in your own posts to share with your fellow PlowSite users.

    Be assured that all of the forums, content and data that you’ve been accustomed to will remain intact, as will all current site features. You’ll also be able to easily access the full list of forums directly from our new homepage.

    We’re excited to bring you this change, and look forward to hearing your feedback.

    Thanks, PlowSite Team

Broken cable on Western

OK, I just had the angling cable break on my Western pump. I have a spare, but I am unsure of the proper way to replace it, and I have no manual. Funny, I have two trucks with the Western cable-operated unit plus I have had 3 others in the past, and I have never had to replace a cable. Even though I blew up on Western the other day (I've since gotten over it) I'd have to say that I am pretty pleased with all of their cable-operated units that I've had. So, how do I do it?

Ok

I have done cable replacement on fishers but never westers.

The cable connects into the joy stick, and the valve body.

It can be done with standard tools and is just a matter of unbolting the old cable and bolting in the new one. However the cable can be adjusted, that takes up more time than anything else.
