    Couple of simple questions

    I'm in the final stages of getting the plow ready and have a couple easy questions.

    1. The power cable running from the motor to the solenoid is a tad short and needs replaced, but I can't find anything that says what gauge it is. There is no marking on the wire, and I was thinking it looks like 6 or 8 gauge, but I don't know for sure.

    2. There's a leak around the swivel elbow on the pump housing. Is it common for the 'C' solenoid to leak or would this more likely be the quick connect? Also, would I need to drain the fluid out of the pump in order to remove the elbow?

    the power wire is an 8 gauge. As for the leak, I would suspect that its coming from the quick connect, cheapest possibility too. You wont have to drain the fluid, but changing the fluid isnt such a bad idea anyway.

    Thanks for the reply. I just put in fresh fluid, that's why I asked about draining it. I don't want to replace the fluid if I don't have to.
