    Does any one have any Pictures of how to drain the fluid out of a E-60 motor, or can some one help with directions on how to. I've seen the E-47 motor and that has three bolts up front and the E-60 only has two.

    Which one is the drain and which one is the fill??

    How do I get all of the fluid out to.

    When you do a complete change(on the E-60) is there still fluid left in the system any where??

    :D :D I know everyone hates these meyers plows but need some help :D :D

    It's the 9/16 plug located next to motor. Make sure the lift ram is down and don't forget to purge the 2 cylinders for the plow.

    Mount the plow. Move the board left and right several times. The last time leave it all the way left. Put blocks under frame and drop board. Disconnect 2 hyd. hoses and put them into 2 coffee cans. Push board right all the way. Empty can. Push board left all the way. Empty can. Do this until no more fluid comes out . Purged.
