Meyer E60 Need Help with No Power Situation
Hello all, new to the forum and to plows. I have a commercial account with 2 Walmarts. I usually use my tractor and skid steer but I just bought my first plow truck. Got tired of being cold and sick plowing.
Truck is an 88 F350 with a 7-1/2 ft meyer poly plow with an E60 pump. The plow has no power going to it. The guy I bought it from didn't know what the problem was but it was pretty obvious its a power issue and the price was right. He said he used it last year, then took it off, moved to a new house where it sat for a couple months, then we he wanted to sell it, nothing. This is my first plow but I am very mechanically inclined and am familiar with motors, hydraulics, wiring, all that. Ive been doing as much reading as possible before asking, but I need some help.
The controller does nothing when you turn it on and press buttons. No clicking, no lights on the controller, no pump noise, nothing. Its the square touchpad with 4 raised buttons.
I have a multimeter and a test light ready to start testing but I need to know where to put the pins/clip to test each circuit. From a different thread I read to test the orange and blue pins in the harness going to the controller inside the cab, and if I touched the right ones (think I did, orange-ground, blue-positive) it didnt read any voltage on my multimeter. Also want to know which terminals to touch for motor, solenoids, etc. I already cleaned connections on the battery to start with. Still nothing.
Motor is the older single lug design. Trying to get this moving in the next day or so because we have a potential storm coming Wednesday (today being sunday)
