    My name is Eric and I am new to the site but not plowing. I am 26 years old and live near Buffalo, NY. I have 6 trucks 2, 1998 chevy 2500's with 7.5 meyers, 3, 2007 f 250 with western VEE's, 2 have drift busters, and the othere has a 3 yard salter, and a 96 F 250 with a western 8'. I have been plowing for about five years, and I do mostly commerical now. I personaly don't plow any more because I was in a nasty car accident in October, but I have a great crew. I am pretty good with hydraulics, and I am a good welder, fabricator, and machineist but a crappy speller.

    Hi everyone. My first time on a message board. Looks like a good one! I' been plowing off and on for 25 years, right now just my own driveway. I have a 1986 Chevy K1500 with a Meyers plow that looks as old as the truck. Any one know how to identify these to get parts? :dizzy:

    Welcome to Plowsite CAP, if you post a pic or two of your setup, there's a few guys on here that can identify it for you by sight ;). Being a mid 80's Meyer setup though, I bet you have an old ST-78 or ST-90 with an E47 pump as these were very very common in that era.

    Thanks B&B. I checked on the internet and it looks like you are right, it looks like an E47 pump. That was the biggest problem, I have leaks and the plow sometimes goes up sometimes not, sometimes goes down, sometimes not.I figure some seals and gaskets with a good clean up should help. I don't want to get to deep into it, it's only two way and kind of old. Again thank you!
