Rebuilding a Meyer E-47 Pump - Step by Step

Page - 9

Now this truck was in some odd accident that tore the right plow light mount off the headgear, and smashed it into the hood. We are not sure what happened, but it was pretty nasty. When going to mount the rebuilt pump, we found severe wear on the Lift Arm. We have been welding in steel bushings to stop this from happening in the future, but we got a new idea, thanks to JimL from the Discussion Forums, to add a grease fitting too.

You can see just how worn out the hole in the Lift Arm was. A New Lift Arm lists for about $55. We can add the Bushing and Grease Fitting for $50. It will never need to be replaced again because of wear. You can buy one of these Lift arms with the bushing and grease fitting in our eBay Store.

You can see the 1-1/4" solid steel bushing we cut from round stock ground and in place ready to be welded.

First we use a Center Punch to mark the hole location. Then we drill a 3/16" pilot hole.

Then we enlarge the pilot hole to 3/8".

And then we drill it out to the final 5/8".

Here you can see the Bushing welded in place, and the grease fitting installed.

We mounted the E-47 back on the truck. When going to connect the power wire to the motor, we found the lug on the end had a huge hole in it, instead of a 1/4" one to match the stud on the motor. So we decided to replace it. When pulling the cable out more from the grille, we found this spot rubbed through. It was easy to spot because the copper cable is starting to turn green. Under the hood was more slack, so we pulled it all out to cut off the rubbed spot, and found another rubbed spot. We decided to replace the cable. We made a new one from welding cable, with new lugs on the ends. One with a 1/4" hole for the motor end, and one with a 5/16" hole for the solenoid end. The Solenoid still works, but we will be replacing it next week. We will also be replacing the ground wire on the battery which we found frayed.

Rebuilding A Meyer E-47 - Step By Step DVD

We chose to put these videos on a DATA DVD. It MUST be played on a computer. It will not play in a conventional DVD player hooked up to a TV. The reason we chose this route is because at just over 5.5 hours in length, it would require 3 DVDs to fit it all...
