    I have a 7.5 foot meyers plow with the E47 pump and it only works when it wants to. The other day i was doing a job and it was working fine went to put it up and it wouldnt go so i chained it up and went home then hit the switch and it worked for a bit then stopped again. I replaced all the wire and everything else from the battery to the pump since it was really old. Then changed the fluid and filters. I also replaced the solinoid too. Am i missing somthing simple or is it the motor?

    If you have toggle switches, check them for loose or corroded connections.
