E-47 drop speed

First, I'd like to say great site! I have just registered, but I have been reading the posts here for a few weeks, and have picked up alot of info. This is my first year with my own truck, and I' am as a sub for my uncle. I have a 93' F-250 with a Meyers 7.5' blade and the E-47 pump. My question is can I increase the drop speed of the blede at all. I tried a search and only found info on the E-60 drop speed, and could not find anything on Chucks Chevy page either.

Having previously asked Chuck I can tell you that there is no drop speed adjustment on the e47. My brother has an e47 on his Jeep with a 6.5 Meyer and it drops real fast. I would think with a bigger plow it would drop faster. Just my thinking but there may be an internal problem causing slow drop speed.

CT is correct no adjustment,but... make sure you are using meyer fluid or equivelent,(NO ATF).

Also,depending on how old your meyer is,they switched the dropped valve to a 5/8 stem (and matching coil), which has slightly larger holes to allow oil to flow back to res. tank and is a stronger valve/coil assembly. FYI on the meyer e-60 they got smart and it is now adjustable.

Good luck, PT.
