    Today I noticed a small amount of fliud around the seal at the top of my pump, Checked the fluid level and it was fine should I worry? It is a Meyers E-60 with low use..... thanks

    I would replace the seal,as if fluid is leaking out,then water will get back in too.Water and hydraulic oil make slush when it gets real cold outside.Not good.

    If your getting a steady leak it's time to replace the top seal and the inner seal. 1/8 dia plastic o-ring on bottom of top cap. This is the actual seal. The top seal is a dust/water seal. Wyldman is on the money with getting it fixed to keep the H2O out. Blue slushies are great in the summer but the suck in a parking lot/driveway during the winter. Jerre
