    I just replaced the pump on my E-47. Got it back on the truck and it lifted fine yhe first try. Now when I try to lift or angle, there is no movement and no "loud growl". It just makes a clicking noise. A single click. I assume the click is a selenoid. It was working about 1 out of 5 times i hit the switch. I have not got the plow to move in the last several tries. I am not sure what to check now. There is plenty of fluid.

    Any ideas? I hope its cheap!

    It is actually my PUMP that is not working. I have not checked my "plump" yet.

    I'd start off by replacing the solinoid. Just for the simple fact they can act lazy sometimes. Clicking but no powwer transfer. Who knows it may just be from sitting, or it could be the begining of failure. For the 25.00 top of the line you can have the reliability of new. Don't forget the diolectric grease and go over all connections from battery to pump and quick connects for the lights.

    Pm'd back and forth a few times with Ned and it turned out that his motor was shot on the pump...
