pump filter screens??

Discussion in 'Western Plows Discussion' started by Avitare, Jan 25, 2008.

  1. My friend has an older (late 80s) Western and we dont know if it
    has filter screens for the pump.

    Are they accessable and how do we get to them ??

    Disconnect your battery.
    Remove the motor .
    stand facing away from the front.
    reach in with your left hand,.
    (i know your right handed? still use your left)

    Slide it down the inside of the front off the res.
    that thing sticking out of the pump in front.
    grab it and wiggle it loose.
    instillation is reverse of removel.
  3. a. I am left handed

    b. This sounds like removing the pump motor will expose the screen
    (and it sounds like there is only one) and we wont have to remove the pump
    or dis-assemble it (?)

    c. is the screen cleanable or do we have to replace it?
