    I have a cable operated Western plow and I need to replace the motor. I have found a few on eBay but they look slightly different. Not knowing how universal these parts are I am not sure if this is what I need. Here are two pictures of mine along with the one from eBay. Is this the correct replacement?

    depends on the pump you have. pumps and motors are compatable in the same housing, but if you have the old style pump with a new style motor (or vis versa) it won't work. the picture you posted is the the new style motor - so buy a replacement new style. heres a pic of the old style so you can see the differences.

    The correct part number for your plow is 56133
    Have a look at this link to the parts poster item #17 http://library.westernplows.com/westernplows/pdf/64681.06_091509_for_Web.pdf

    This picture shows that you should have a "female" drive on the motor and the "male" on the pump. That means that your motor should NOT have a shaft sticking out. Your photo shows the correct gender but the casting that sticks out by the output looks odd and the casting on the side of the motor over the pole shoes is unusual too. Most of these Isarmatic motors are smooth on the outside of the motor. I would try to set it on and see if it sit down all the way, be carefull to line up the slot on the drive. If it doesn't go down all the way don't try to force it or it will break.
