    I am beginning to take my plow apart and get things ready for the season. It seems a mouse decided to make a nest inside the A frame. Some of the hoses were chewed and one wire coming out of the float valve is chewed bare. it still works, but i need to repair this. it looks like the valve is over $100 (wow :dizzy:) .. wondering if I can buy both or one side of the connector to splice in and repair ??

    any thoughts ??

    if you have enough wire I would solder a new wire in, shrink wrap it and tape over, should be an acceptable repair. I'm sure you could also find a replacement plug at NAPA, they usually have a good selection of plugs, you could really use any type of weather tight connector providing it uses as heavy gauge wire as the oem plug used. Again solder and shrink wrap all connections.

    If you want to remove the jack piston, the main pivot bolt has to come out, the bottom cover has to come off, then the tension springs have to be loosened for the jack leg. Then remove the jack leg, then the jack piston should come out. Curtis does have repair harness ends for your plow. Do you have the singe plug or two plug

    i cant believe what you have to go thru just to change the jack hose. what a pain in the ass. should have left it alone.
