    Just purchased a mid 70's western plow. It has a t stick contol with red cables, and one is bad. Can you purchase these red cables, or will the black adjustible ones work. If it work can I just upgrade to the joystick contol and get rid of the t stick control. Any input would be great.ussmileyflag

    As far as I remember the cables are the same for the "T" and Joystick, but if the "T" control is worn its difficult to get adjusted. You can replace it with a Joystick that comes with adjustable cables on both lift and angle. Having an adjustment on the lift works really well when your trying to make it all work. I used to spend a lot of time in Waupaca and if I remember there is a Fleet Farm near you, they should have what you need.
