    I have an older 8 foot Diamond plow setup that came on my ’86 Ford F250. The truck finally died and I am in the process of moving the plow to a ’91 F250. The plow is in great shape (only was used to do my home driveway) but in looking at the under the hood, belt driven plow pump and cable controls, I was wondering do I have any options to upgrade? I have seen some 12v electric pumps and controls and was curious if something like that could be retrofitted to work with my plow?

    I always liked the under hood set up for a couple of reasons one it does not drain the electrical system to run the plow. Another reason is that you can use the plow to get you out of a jam if you get stuck something you cant do with electric.

    I would set up your new truck the same as your old.
