4-way valve, cable operated question

    I am getting a high presser leak between where the cable and linkage enclosure (the pentagon shaped thing on the driver's side of the 4-way valve) and the 4-way valve body connect. This is the seam where the paper-thin shim sits. I took it apart and wounder if I should just replace the shim and put everything back together or is there something I should be looking at while I have it apart.

    One last thing, the leak happens when I raising the plow, right at the very top (i.e. I can raise it a foot or so with no leak). When I get to that point hydraulic fluid sprays out everywhere from that seam.

    Thanks!

    More than likey its just the shims but there is a o-ring in there also.
