    Plow is still at my cousins house, but it's the original Meyer plow the truck came with. I can get out there later for more pics of the system

    im Not seeing a belt driven hyd-pump or a under-hood hyd power unit.

    What is this solenoid for?
    And are the wires hooked up to it
    The one doesn’t look like it goes any wear?

    Ether the pump is on the plow or
    ?? Someone removed it??

    What controller do you have for the plow?
    Out of curiosity.

    My cousin may have removed it, but I doubt it. He just took it off.
    The relay is for the motor to raise and lower the plow. Confirmed it was bad and replaced, now the motor turns on, but no fluid.

    So where is the “ motor “?
    As most “ motors “are concerned to the hyd revisor.

    Where do the side to side hoses from the plow hook up to?

    Is this motor mounted to the plow?

    And is that red wire hooked up to something ?
    In the pic it looks like there is a short red wire
    Just Laying there that is coming off the solenoid?

    Motor is on the front. Plow controls say side to side, but havemt had a chance to crawl under and check connection locations. And with new snow today, not likely to happen for a few days.

    Red wire I think is just a strange view

    You have an electric over hydraulic plow.
    That is the typical plow set up nowadays.

    You DO NOT HAVE A BELT DRIVEN PLOW.

    There is a fill plug on that unit.

    Excellent, well thank you guys forgetting me set straight! Cant ask my grandpa and my cousin never used the plow, so starting from not much.

    Keep you guys updated on how the fill goes

    Thanks a ton! Definitely going to need a flush and fill for sure. Hydraulics probably havent been used in a few years so definitely in need of a change.
    And thanks for the video. Makes it a lot easier knowing what to look for ! cheers

    That picture brings back memories the factory installed toggle switches The next year’s variation they put 2 inch plastic extensions on the toggles and called them slap sticks. The only time the transmission light came on was two minutes before it stopped working I thought you had a choice between fisher or Meyer but it was a dealer preference not up to the customer to order

    I don’t remember the fun part. Do remember the sore left arm reaching for the short toggle switches. Definitely a big improvement with V8 and auto transmissions and heater fans that were quiet so you could here the radio
