    ok so here's my problem last season the e60 on my one truck slowly leaked down unless i held the switch up for an extra second so i pulled the valve out blew it out reinstalled it and it was fine this year it plowed only one storm so far and worked fine now it leaks down again pulled out the valve blew it out again and reinstalled still leaks maybe a little slower then before solenoid seems to be working good does this mean i need a new valve the reason i ask is because it leaks slow in guessing it may be stuck just a tiny bit open?? any help is greatly appreciated as they are calling for some snow tonight and sat

    Mine was doing that crap last yr, it ended up being the o ring at the bottom of the piston tube in the resivoir.

    ugh man exactly what i was hoping it wasn't so there is no chance of it being a valve??

    Could be the O ring, the valve, the o rings on the valve or the packing cup. Sure I am missing something but start where you like. If cleaning the A valve improved it before would lead me to think the A valve is the issue but a lot can change over a year.

    Its a easy fix only takes some simple hand tools and some new fluid. You could do it on the truck if you had to. But a warm indoor place would be better. Your kit is #15707SP it has all the parts for the 60 and 60h. Once you do it you will say why did I wait so long..
