    BAY......Make sure you get a Western solenoid. You prob. have a Ford one.
    They will work in a pinch but can't handle the plowing loads as I had one of those units. The Western unit will only have 1 smalll post for the joystick control and 2 big ones for the battery and power to the plow motor cable.
