I hate to just state the obvious, but it sure sounds like you broke one
of the connections or left one off.

Were any of the plugs really stuck on? That would be the first one I
would check for a wire pulled out of the clip or crimp connector.

first go back and check all the conections to make sure they are clean it
could be a bad conection i never used any of that kind of spray when i
usto plow i just used sand paper or a little wire brush to clean
conection. also check to see if u have 12volts going to the pump also
check to see if the stud that sticks out of the pump moter that it is
tight and make sure that it didnt get over tightened and break the
conection off inside the pump moter check to see if you have a bad ground.
are fisher plows the ones that have all thoes relays by the pump check to
see if u have a broken wire. hope this helps

First I have owned Fisher plows for 13 years so i know them well. I
need a like more infor on your problem. The pump motor itself is a
seperate function for the spool valve that cantrol the hydraulic flow.
When they do nor open it will fotce pump to work against releif valve
and cause it to squeal. You may have ice crystals in the pump circuit
which can cause to to stop working and squeal. (I had this happen to
me once is severe cold but since then I add about 1 oz of gas
antifreeze to fluid with each change and it has never happened again)
If you give me more info I can fix this. (exact problems, model and
age)
