    ok i am new to plowing just got a setup for my truck but its not complete so i need to find some parts but dont know the name of the parts or what exactly i need!! so i have a fisher plow setup i have blade, and the push plate i believe its called which connects to my trucks frame. this is not a min mount! so i need the lift assembly and a joystick because all i have is the cables that goto the controls on the valve body. i also have a valve body and a hydraulic pump but i am not sure i have pump bracket i need to look.

    so questions are what is the yellow thing the chain hooks to called? what is the box frame that goes to the lift piston called? is there a joystick for the old 1980's setup and what is it called? or do i just need to push in and out the cable?

    also where can i get these parts used inexpensively? and i also need headlights too! so bascially i need the headlights down that whole frame the headlights and lift cylinder are on

    Just search craigslist. There are tons of plow parts. Use plow as a search.
  3. Agree with TJS. You are looking for some really old speedcaster stuff. CL would be the place to track some of it down.

    I dont know who told you that. I have two trucks that plow for the state. They both have belt driven systems.
    They are slow as hell but they are down and to the right almost allways.
