    I purchased a truck/plow combo about a year ago and i was just recently doing my first full plow service and 3 of 4 reservoir bolts broke. While tapping the holes to helicoil them one went to far into an internal valve port and now i have a leak. I have now taken it back apart and am attempting to try some thread sealant. Has this happened to anyone else? What worked for them?

    well the helicoil and teflon tape seems to work i hooked everything up tonight and it works and doesn't leak. Just need a little snow to get the fluid hot and see how if it holds for sure.'
