    How do I separate the electric motor from the pump housing? I think the motor is bad and I'd like to get it out to rebuilt or replace. Any help would be great.

    Usually it's 2 bolts that hold it in place.
    Why do you think your motors bad?
    Any chance for a picture of the motor/pump

    When I put the plow in the up position there is 12v at the motor but nothing happens. I also ran a set of jumper cables from the battery to the motor and nothing. I will try to post a couple pic.

    If you hooked cables from the battery straight to the motor and nothing,,,,,then yes I'd be thinking motor to.

    To replace electric motor. Remove plow from truck. Support a-frame so its about level. Pry jack leg down, put a 2x4 or something to hold it away from a frame. you will see two 9/16 bolts at bottom of a frame. Remove them. Remove the 9/16 bolt at rear of a frame. Remove hose from the lift piston, then remove lift chain and lean lift frame rearward. Lift the motor assembly out of the a frame, then put a 2x4 under hydraulic part. Remove battery cables, then two bolts, remove the motor, do not loose the coupling. :nono:
    Reverse procedure to install.
