    Have a bulk lube truck, currently has a Blackmer pump. Want to swap out with a Roper, but this truck the pto runs counter clockwise(ccw), have a Roper that runs clockwise(cw), are Ropers direction ‘changeable’? TIA

    What model do you have? I believe they all can run either direction

    You could always swap the hydraulic hoses.

    I figured easier to swap pumps, than try and procure a pto for a Super 10, that runs clockwise. lol
    Blackmer was coming off anyways.

    Got it figured out, unbolt the front drive housing, turn it 90 deg. Re-bolt on, do the same with the rear housing. Thanks for everybody’s help.
