    Not at the moment but you can't really see the crack. And just barely feel it when you go over it with a finger nail. But when i have someone lower the plow with me looking at it. Can really see it squirt out fluid. Its its just to the right of the angleing block if look at it head on.

    If you see it coming out thru the base I would guess you need a new base. Most likely it had some water in it that froze and cracked the base. If/when you replace the base be sure to flush angle rams also.

    Just make sure fluid is not coming out from under the caps or from inbetween angle block and base.

    $150-200 new. I can check with local plow shop, I know he has a few used ones. Anyone that rebuilds meyer pumps may have a used one laying around.
