    Ive burnt up two pumps in the last week on the same plow... when I replaced the the motor i also replaced the pump... as it turned out the new pump was bad... the gears were rubbing on the spacer plate and it turned really hard... put on a new pump and it worked great for about 3 hours, then smoked the motor... replaced the motor again and rigt now its working fine ( afraid to go use it ) angling the motor sounds great, while raising though it sounds like its working too hard... what am I missing???
