    hey wuz up im new to this plow stuff so bare with me. the bolt you put the power wire to the motor broke and i was wondering if there is anyway to replace that with out getting a whole new motor. the motor was working fine but my dad i guess tightened the nut to much and broke it now we have no power. another thing a guy told me all the motor is is a ford starter. is that true and if it is do you know what model. thanks for the help.

    any electric motor rebuilding shop that rebuilds starter's and alternator's should be able to replace the stud .
