    Hello all! I am a newbie to plowing, a friend of mine offered me a basket case that he said would fit my 1982 Bronco, I'm a little concerned about it and want to make sure it was supposed to be on my truck. Trouble is I can't find any identifying marks on the harness or the plow itself. I have a few picks and thought I would post them and see if anyone could help me out.

    My other issue is that the E47 pump is cracked at the base, from much abuse I'm sure, is that a relatively easy or cost effective peice to replace? Or should I go straight to buy a new one? I'm just clearing snow for myself and a friend, nothing professional, but any help is appreciated!

    the E-47 base is $185 on ebay.
    the only way you can know if the mounting carton will fit your truck without numbers is to try to put it on.

    The sump base is not that hard to replace if you have some mnechanical ability. Go to the cpw site and print out the user manaual....www.centralparts.com/Common/Documents/PDFs/Meyer/1-562 R14 E-57 Manual.pdf.... That is the link, don't know how to make it an active link. If you are goint to replace the base, you nees to tear down the entire power pack. If you are doing this you might as well rebuild the pack. At the very least, you need to replace the seals and fluid while you have it apart. Any idea if the plow worked befor the base cracked? It might work out to your advantage to have a repair place take a look at it and just pay them to fix it. It is so much easier to fix if you have a test bench. Mike
