    my e47 is slowly giving out, i have nursed it long enough, its leaking badly out the top cap, sticking when fully angled in both directions, 2 of the 3 coils have badly corroded and cracked wires,it probably needs a c valve and maybe a crossover valve rebuild so i decided that i will replace it with a rebuilt pump from Storks with a 1 year warranty, replace both angle cylinders as both of mine are pitted and i see no good reason to attach a new pump to worn cylinders and replacing both hoses and couplers. the mold board, sector and a frame are sound. If anyone has any suggestions i'm all ears and Please don't suggest a new plow because if i could afford it right now i wouldn,t be asking this. When i bought this plow i figured all this would be needing done i just didn't know when and i got it cheap enough to be able to do this and still be under 2 grand. The main question i'm asking is would i be better off upgrading to an e60 pump or stay with an e47. Thank You Mike

    Stay with the e47pumps. I rant them both for 12 years and the E47 was nearly bullet proof compared the bad design of the e60. I am sure you can find some on CL or Ebay for a good price.
