    Hi With snow on the way to new England iam trying to get my plow to work. I bought a used Snoway Lobo V plow. Hooked it up and it was fine for a while then just stopped working. The solenoid clicks that's it. It looks like the solenoid was starting to burn up. The problem iam having is I want to replace the solenoid but there is no way of getting the exact one before the storm, is there a substitute? Also what could have burnt it up, a bad Ground?

    Thanks much for any help you can offer

    I just had the same problem with my Lobo. I ended up buying a two prong western solenoid, and it worked fine. I learned the hard way, don't try using a regular automotive solenoid, they just burn up as well, lol. The new style western worked just fine on my plow though. Good luck.
