    Has anyone ever had any problems repacking the Angle Rams for a unimount Plow? I have already taken the ram apart, but places are telling me that repacking them does not work. Also do the new seals have to be pressed on? Any help or opinions would be great.

    no problem as long as the piston is in good shape ,they are just vee packings you just slide on in the same order they came off (vee Up) .

    Thanks, i am figuring the dealers want to sell the whole Ram for $91 instead of just selling the seals.

    Is there a trick to getting the new seals in the cylinder?

    Forget the question, i figured it out. I was thrown when i took the ram out, and the seals were at the bottom. I guess that is where my problem was at.:dizzy:
