SOURCE: not sure how to hook up plow motor to battery? Its

The heavy + should be connected to the battery through the solenoid for the motor. There should be wires to control the solenoid (an electric switch, you know). The - goes to the truck's frame at a place of your choice. The ground must be solid, you know that, right?

I think if I were doing this install, I would hook the plow ground with the battery ground on the fame or where ever it is located.

The plow control should be mounted for your convenience inside the cab.

Lets review: Plow motor | ground to ground, hot to solenoid (motor side) | solenoid (battery side) to battery | solenoid control wires to cab.

My fisher minuteman 2 plow will go up and left and right but will not go down


Most of those systems don't have a driven retraction on the piston. It is gravity feed back. There is a valve that is sticking or out of adjustment. http://library.fisherplows.com/?cat=38

How to replace starter motor


Remove the battery connection ground, lift the vehicle with a jack on the side starter is on and block the under the frame for safety, take the starter cable off the solenoid and remove the starter wire from solenoid, remove the bolts holding the starter on and drop the starter out. This starter is not heavy, but it will be over your head so don't drop it. Replace the starter in this same way by putting the new starter in and tightening the bolts, then hook the starter wire back on the small stud on solenoid and the cable to the large stud. Let it down on it's tires and hook the battery back up and your done.

Well, if your starter starts to turn when you hook the battery cable up, then you have hooked the cable to the wrong post on the starter. You have two large posts and one small post on the starter solenoid, the battery cable goes on the large post that has nothing else hooked to it. The other large post should have a large braided cable going into the starter motor housing. If the starter still will not turn the engine over when it is wired correctly then you will need to look closer at the flywheel ring gear.

Not a lot to work with here so I'm going to have to make some assumptions, and may need some more info. I'm going to assume this solenoid operates a hydraulic pump motor for the plow. If it looks something like a ford starter relay there are two large terminals and two small ones. One large one is power from the source, the other is power out to the motor. The small ones control it one is the ground, and one comes from the controller. If you have power on both large terminals and the motor does not run you problem is down stream. Check the cable connection at the at the motor, and check your ground. If you have power to the motor and a good ground the motor is dead.

Solenoid for fisher plow


There are two large terminals One terminal will be just a nut on a bolt and the other will have a wire under the nut that goes down into the starter. The batter wire goes on the one that just has the nut. If you put it on the other one the starter will spin immediately as you are supplying power to the armature direct and by passing the solenoid.

Truck will not start how can i tell if its a starter or selonoid


does it spin real fast without clanging and grinding against the flywheel? if so then its probably the solenoid bad. do you have to hit the starter with a hammer then it works? it is probably bad brushes or a worn motor. eather way i think you can only get a new starter and solenoid together not sold seperate. check for bad battery cables (loose).

There is a ground that is deteriorated in the harness. trace the ground lead back from the connection to your truck. Once you find the break, that should take care of your problem.

It is also possible to be a power lead, so check them also, but more often than not it is a ground.l

Hope this helps.
