    Hi, I just bought my first ever snowplow yesterday. I am looking for some direction of where to begin. I found this website as one place to begin. I went to the manufacturer's website and located a dealer. I need to get a manual probably first. I bought a used Meyer ST78 and I want to put it on a 1991 S10 extended cab 4wheel drive 4.3. The blade and ram tilt cylinders look very good. The pump in the middle of the A frame has a loop cast in the bottom of the pump body to pivot on a bolt and the bottom of the loop is busted out. I am a CNC machine tool service engineer. I work with hydraulics and hydraulic controls every day and I have access to welding and metal fabrication shops. I am just trying to figure out where to begin. I want this to plow my driveway which is .2 miles long and is gravel and runs uphill through forest.

    I read your post and don't understand what you are asking. It sounds like you know where to begin. You went to the website and found a dealer to get a manual. You say it needs some fabrication and you have access to fab shops and are into hydraulics. I don't get what you are asking so that is probably why you only got 1 response.

    The answers to your questions are: yes, no, no, yes, yes, yes, no, and yes. (in that order)

    Good luck.

    perhaps this will help.................

    measure twice, design, buy materials, fabricate/build, install, then wait for snow to come....................

    worked for me... installed an 8 ft Fisher from an 84 Ford on a 77 Ford
