    To change plow fluid:
    Set the a-frame on block so the plow is off ground and the blade can be moved back and forth.
    Drain the pump. For my E-60, the Allen plug is at the bottom of the pump. If there isn’t a plug to empty it, you may have to turn the pump upside down and drain through the refill hole. Or you can use a suction pump and suck it out, wich may be easier if you have a suction pump.
    Drain the angle rams by removing the quick connects and using an extra set of quick connects with hoses going into a bucket. Now manually move plow back and forth emptying the rams. Connect the regular hoses up as normal. You can now refill with the proper fluid if you don’t think you need to flush the system. Make sure you check the fluid level when you are done because it maybe be low.

    To Flush the system:
    After emptying the pump and rams as described above, remove the extra quick connects and hook up as normal and fill the pump with Naptha.
    Cycle all functions of the pump with the plow controls for a few times.
    Drain pump and angle rams as you just did and fill with the proper fluid.
    IF the first oil and or Naptha comes out dirty, I repeat the above using clean naptha until naptha comes out clean. If it comes out milky, you may have water getting into your system. If the second flush comes out nice and clean, save that and use it for the first flush the next time you Flush the system.

    A good method to bleed the system of air is to park with the angle cylinders pointed down hill so that the ports in the cylinders are higher than the front part of the cylinder. Start angling the plow and this will push the air up and out of the pressure relief fitting.
