    Drain fluid. Unbolt the three bolts on top. Use screwdriver and hammer to pop the top off. Slide top up off ram. Lift ram and ram tube out. Hit ram on a board to drive ram out of bottom of lift tube. If capable hone and clean lift tube. Install packing cup on lift ram. Put some on oil packing cup. Put lift tube over the top of new ram and smack on board to drive packing cup into lift tube. Remove lift tube o ring from pump base and install new one. Put lift tube/ram assembly back in. Fill to within 1 1/2" of top with fluid. Replace seals in top cover, including outer o ring. Reinstall top cover with fill plug next to motor. Install new nytite washers. Tighten the top cover bolts. Operate plow then check fluid.


    This would be good time to flush angle rams also.

    I am guessing you are talking about the sleeve pressed into the top cover. Pry wiper seal out first. Then drive the sleeve out with punch and hammer. Put sleeve back in with a dead blow and a socket. Then put wiper seal back in.

    Seal puller would be best but pry bar or screw driver will work. Rarely do I have much trouble getting wiper seal out.

    Little hint, take a draw bar for hitch and put it in a vice with open end facing up. Put the bottom of the pump in that hole. Works well to hold the pump..

    One last thing, If the long studs unthread from the base when taking it apart put them back in before putting it back together.

    Ok have top half of pump apart n ram n cylinder removed. Bought replacement cyl too. Too far gone. Have seen a nylon lock nut used at bottom of ram and/or a dab of locktite. Should I do either/both? Thank you.

    What happened to the old nut? Normally they are crimp style nut but I don't see why you couldn't use a nylon lock nut.

    No the old nut is there but it doesn't have either of those qualities. A pictorial I was following mentioned them

    Either one will work just fine.
